Grimsby amateur TV Group


GB3GG was located on  Thesiger House one of six tower blocks in Grimsby's East Marsh area located close to the fish docks and Freeman Street IO93XN .The tower blocks are due to be demolished in 2018.The atv repeater was removed a few years ago along with GB3GY which is a analog 70cms voice repeater.

The decision was made to re-instate the live video stream to the BATC website until a suitable location could be found for a new repeater site,GB3GG is non operational but we are looking at the possibility to re-instate the repeater in the near future.


 A new site has been found at Caistor Top close to Grimsby were GB3CT will be sited,the plan is to have  tv receive capability at  Grimsby and relay this along with the live video stream to Caistor.

To view the live stream you will need flash player it should run on a windows pc if you are useing android or apple device download puffin web browser. 




About G1HZN, 

I passed the RAE way back in 1984 at the age of 15,my first contact was on 2m ssb with G1EHC & G4YYE,my equipment consisted of a Yaesu FTdx401 valve hf transceiver driving a micro wave modules transverter into an 8 element Jaybeam yagi antenna.

How things change,

HF radio : Yaesu FTdx3000

HF antenna : ZS6BKW multiband dipole

VHF/UHF radio : Yaesu FT847    

VHF antenna : 9 element LFA yagi
