Re: GB3MCB on 23 cms


Hello John,
As far as I know, they do not use common frequency reference.
Each beacon is a completely seperate unit.

I haven't made an accurate measurement but the 6m beacon seemed slightly off frequency last night. Do they all use the
same frequency reference? G8SEQ/P lsles of Scilly.
