MB7UIV RX only APRS iGate
MB7UIV was the first APRS Internet gateway to be licensed in the UK. It was owned and operated by Keith, G6NHU.
On 5th June 2010, MB7UIV was retired from service after nearly eleven years of almost continuous operation.
At 13:55z on 8th February 2017, MB7UIV returned as an APRS RX only iGate using a Raspberry Pi and an RTL-SDR dongle. All APRS traffic received on 144.800MHz is relayed onto the internet.
The gateway was built using this method and is again owned and operated by Keith, G6NHU.
