Please be aware that we have now black-listed the above serial numbers and these devices will not work at all or will only work with a very restricted range of software. Anyone with any of these devices will not receive any form of support or technical assistance from SDRplay.

We are aware that the following eBay sellers have been selling devices from the stolen consignment: (formerly listed as mansnothot01)

Whilst we recognise that the above resellers may well have purchased the devices in good faith and in complete innocence, they have thus far failed to cooperate with us by explaining where they obtained the devices from. We will therefore be forwarding on their details to the Police so that they can investigate further.

We strongly recommend that people only purchase new devices from an authorised SDRplay distributor or reseller. A full list of authorised sellers is available from our website at:

Thank you

Manx repeater information   Leave a comment

Manx repeater supporters…..

Just to keep you all updated, I have today paid the annual insurance premium of £70 for the seven Manx repeaters namely GB3GD, GB3IM-C, GB3IM-R, GB3IM-S, GB3IM-P, GB7CA, GB7BR.

This insurance is primarily for 3rd party risks.

This is one of the ways the IOMARS support our repeater keeper David Osborn GD4HOZ.
