MB7USE APRS Digipeater

MB7USE APRS Digipeater

MB7USE is the latest APRS Installation which we, Essex RAYNET, have commissioned.

Building upon the success of MB7UCH & MB7UMN, we decided to install a VHF APRS Digipeater, MB7USE, at our Southend Site.

This will help plug a gap in APRS Coverage between Southend and the Chelmsford/Maldon Area, for Essex RAYNET and use by Radio Amateurs.

We installed the APRS Digipeater at our Southend location, on Wednesday 10th July 2024.

Operating on the standard VHF APRS Frequency of 144.800MHz

Configured for Wide 1-1, Wide 2-2 Digipeating, with Trace and Duplicate checking enabled.
