In the middle of 2014, the application for GB7ES B, a D-Star digital UHF Repeater for the East Sussex area was submitted to the E.T.C.C. for approval.  After a about 4/5 months waiting, the NOV for GB7ES was received at the beginning of 2015. There was a delay in getting the repeater on-site and operational due to a localised fire within the building in Dec, which meant the repeater could be bench tested, before being taken to site once the repair works had been completed, in July
