Light Wave Communications

We have finally started work on our optical communication systems, thanks to the massive help from Bernie G4HJW from the nanowavesUK group.

We have built some very rough tubes to mount our optics and last night, Friday 30th July 2021, we tested the system between the GB3WB repeater site and Red Lane near Burnham on sea, 6.6KM away.

We achieved fully quietening signals over this distance, and know that we can travel much further from the site once we have re-built the optics and mounted them properly.

A massive thanks to the nanowavesUK group for all of the information which is available from them and to Bernie for supplying the boards.
