GB7YD pay pall donations - 15/02/2008

The South Yorkshire Repeater Group have put a pay pall donation point on our web site

We ask anyone who is interested in using GB7YD 2 meters and 70 Cms to donate to the group.

At this moment in time we have invested over £3000 in to the Dstar project to get on to the server this will cost us £500 each year after the 1st year and £300.
