Central Coast Amateur Radio Club News – May 5,2024

The club rooms at Kariong are open on Saturdays from 10:30am. As always, members and visitors are most welcome.

Last week the club held its regular Show and Tell. Col VK2ZCO showed off some satellite antennas. Graham VK2GRA brought in some mobile antennas, and an old meter from the 1970s. Glenn VK2GEM showed various types of microphones and a testing kit that he has and Michael VK2HFN showed a portable kit he is working on.

At the VK2RAG Somersby repeater site the 6m, D-Star, Rad-Net DMR, 2m Echolink, 70 and 23cm services are fully functional. The radio attached to the WICEN UHF MMDVM has been replaced for the time being with a Quantar unit. Currently this repeater is only doing P25 and analogue.

The Weekly net is run on Thursday night at 8:00pm on the VK2RAG repeater – 146.725MHz with a 91.5Hz sub-audible tone, and on the CCARCNSW and HAM Echolink conferences. It is also live video-streamed on the club’s facebook page.

You can find out more about the CCARC, our upcoming social events and other details that we can’t tell you about here on the web at ccarc.org.au, by phone on 02 4340 2500, or on social media by searching for “Central Coast Amateur Radio Club”. Remember to give the club a “like” to follow for any updates.

73, from Alan VK2MG
Publicity Officer, Central Coast Amateur Radio Club.
