Dose anyone know what has happened to the GB3YL repeater?
Not herd it for a while, and according to the RSGB repeater page, it's 'Not operational' from 20th of June 2017?
Is this a permanent thing or has it broken?

Till Ray the repeater keeper has the time to fix it, I suspect, as he's not an active ham (like me), and he works for himself, so it will have to wait till he has time.

To be honest, I suspect it failed, because I cannot see anyone doing maintenance as a routine thing. On the other hand, it is on a very tall multi-storey council block of flats recently had adding fitted ................

The antennas are still visible, so obviously things like having them fall down don't seem to have happened.

Any update on GB3YL?
I heard it was meant to be back on air in March then in June but the air is still empty. Very frustrating with no repeater to use.
