connecting amateurs around the north west

Red Rose Repeater Group is all about bringing Radio Amateurs together from all over the north west, and connecting the north west to around the word via Yaesu System Fusion!

3 Yaesu Fusion Gateways!

We started with just one gateway over a year ago now MB6IPR and have grown now to 4 gateways, the other ones being MB6PR & MB6FR & now MB6IFR multimode gateway!

2 meter Analougue Voice Repeater

After a successful year with our Fusion gateways we decided that we would love to provide a repeater to the North West with possible future plans to incorporate digital.

Fatastic coverage

Our gateways and repeater are located in the beautiful village of Elswick & Freckleton, Preston. Surrounded by open fields so there’s no obstructions.

What a Beautiful site.

At 53°50′20″N 2°52′50″W (53.839°, −2.880°), and approximately 240 miles (390 km) north-west of London, Elswick lies on a coastal plain called the Fylde. It is approximately 8.5 miles (14 km) east of the seaside resort of Blackpool, approximately 7 miles (11 km) south-east of Poulton-le-Fylde and about 12 miles (19 km) north-west of its post town, Preston.
