It has been a while since I've been able to get on air as the last few months have been VERY busy for a variety of reasons.
The PMR446 gateway computer failed again but I may have solved the problem. The current 80GB hard disk was not being detected, I have, however, replaced the power supply, which was just out of a theory I had, and the hard disk was detected and the gateway computer booted successfully, the gateway is now operating on it's usual channel and CTCSS combination, it has also been up for a week without a fault, I am keeping a reasonably close eye on it though I'd need to keep a radio on me at all times to be absolutely sure and I would not be able to do so.
I am happy that the gateway is back on air, this means I can hopefully restart work on the CB gateway again, and hopefully that will be on air before the end of the year.
