GB3UHF Sponsors and Donors

Without the generosity of the GB3UHF sponsors, equipment and financial donors and invaluable helpers and supporters, the new beacon would not have been possible. Thanks to you all.

The support of the many financial donors who have given generously, to enable the initial build costs to be met. Several parts to build the beacon such as the GPSDO 10MHz reference oscillator have been purchased from the beacon fund .

The valued support and help of the following radio amateurs and organisations that have made the beacon possible:
