GB7EL - East Lancs DMR Repeater

The use of Baofeng DM-5R radios on DMR repeaters, and specifically on GB7EL, will not be tolerated.

Despite the claims that these radios are compatible with DMR radio systems, this simply is not true and as such they are totally unsuitable for use on all Tier II repeaters.

They are designed for FDMA digital systems, not TDMA digital systems and attempting to use one on a DMR repeater will simply occupy TWO time slots at all times causing unacceptable problems to ALL repeater users.

Using one on GB7EL or any other DMR repeater could be construed as deliberate interference (which would be a breach of amateur radio licences).
