New DMR Repeater for Chippenham


We are pleased to announce that a new DMR Repeater covering Chippenham and North Wilts has been licensed. The new repeater will be connected to the South West Cluster and will have two Talk Groups (TGs 950 and 9).

This is a privately funded repeater and at this time there is no need for any financial assistance. The aim of this venture is to provide enhanced coverage along the M4 between Junctions 18 & 16 and also to improve SW Cluster coverage for mobiles and handheld stations in and around Chippenham. The MOD have only sanctioned 6w output at the transmitter so we will be doing our best with what we have been allowed.

We hope to get WW on the air in the next few weeks (by end of July).

Those all important frequencies for your radios:

Set your radio’s RX to 439.475Mhz

Set your radio’s TX to 430.475Mhz

Set your Colour Code to 7

For SW Cluster set your radio to TG950 on SLOT 2

and on a 2nd Channel do the same but select TG 9 and Slot 1

Here is a likely coverage map based on a mobile station and a basic set up.
