This website, which is currently under development, deals with the early history of the North Western Repeater Group’s Rossendale Forest VHF repeater GB3RF, and to a lesser extent the (then) associated UHF repeaters GB3FC (Fylde Coast) and GB3PF (Pendle Forest).

Any changes to this website since 1st October 2018 are recorded here.

Last update - 20 October 2018

Unfortunately, with the passage of time, much of the original material has been lost. However, thanks to the help provided to me by various radio amateurs, some bits have been ‘salvaged’ and those, together with my own ‘archives’ have been used on this website.

If you have any relevant material, or if you discover some ‘faulty’ links, please send me (G4BLH) an Email via g4blh ‘at’ (replace ‘at’ with @).

For current information about the North Western Repeater Group and GB3RF go to the website here.
