G7EKY Nick is the keeper of the GB3HH repeater and the GB3BUX beacons on 70.000MHz and 50.000MHz, all on behalf of the Buxton Radio Amateurs. The repeaters and beacons are maintained by a small group of volunteers, mainly Tony G3RKL and Nick G7EKY, when time and funds become available. The repeater and the beacons are co-sited with each other at Harpur Hill, 2 miles south of Buxton. As you can imagine, maintaining 3 sets of aerials on a very exposed position is no mean feat.
The Club also runs Foundation Courses when new people coming in to the hobby show an interest in obtaining a licence.
In 2006 we set up a special event station (GB4STM) from St Thomas More School in Buxton for Science Week. More than 150 contacts were made on the HF bands, using the club 80 foot Versatower, a G5RV anntenna and club members' own equipment.
