     The Group's analogue TV repeater GB3KT (original callsign) was closed down in 2017 after coming up to nearly 30 years service. At one time the KTG boasted a membership in excess of 50 and is greatly missed by those still around who remember the 'good old days'.

      Revival of the Group is not out of the question, anybody interested should contact us via the link above. A digital drive source may be available (NoVs are not available for FM repeaters), as well as logic, analogue receiver and antenna. If there was sufficient interest and a suitable site was found, GB3KT callsign could be re-applied for with an NoV - possibly subject to the holder of the NoV for GB3DK relinquishing it (the Stelling Minnis site has been lost anyway).

 

      The KTG analogue transmitter has been 'lost', we are making efforts to track it down, as we would like to put it back on air, possibly in beacon mode initially, in an attempt to regenerate interest. There are several possible development ideas we have in mind.

      FM mode, as opposed to digital, has always been the preferred method of modulation by the Kent Television Group and this is still the case. There are currently links operating in Kent in the 23cm and 13cm bands using FM TV and the viability of the same on 6cm is being investigated.
