G3GQC - Mansfield Amateur Radio Society - www.g3gqc.co.uk
It is regretted that MARS had closed after the best part of 80 years.
Membership has been falling and at closure in July 2017 there was 8 members
only a couple are active on the air and the rest had lost interest in operating
and maintaining the ‘society’
A few ‘ex’ members will try and put on Special Events during the coming years
e.g. Papplewick Pumping Station & Pleasley Pit.
For the time being we will retain the old club call sign G3GQC
The Mansfield Repeater Group GB3MD GB3MX has also closed
as both repeaters closed down on 03/03/2013, due to loss of QTH.
and no hope of getting a suitable site in the Mansfield area for GB3MD
The frequency that was used my GB3MX is now being used by another group.
