The Clubs repeater team has recently commissioned a VK-DMR based repeater in conjunction with the ARNSW Radio Network Group and reports are the coverage is great! One station was transmitting from Inner Sydney and reached the repeater on 2 watts via Handheld. The Club appreciates the support from ARNSW with this project. The repeater is accessible on 438.850 MHz with a negative 7.0mhz offset with VK-DMR based talk groups.
The 2021 Wyong Field Day is still going ahead with traders already booked in. If you are interested in attending or are looking to sell goods at the car boot sale and would like to register or obtain further information, please email email@example.com.
Remember to lock the date into your calendar’s, Sunday the 28th of February, there are also whispers of fox hunts occurring on the Saturday prior again too, Both Mobile and Pedestrian, so Keep your eyes and ears peeled.
Please keep in mind that this event is subject to Government health advice which the team are monitoring closely. Updates will be provided as progress continues. For the latest information, please check out the club’s website.
The Clubrooms are scheduled to re-open again on Saturday the 9th of January, however with the current Greater Sydney area rising health situation, this may be changed at short notice.
The Club’s Thursday evening nets are currently on hold and will resume on the 7th of January 2021.
Bob VK2AOR who has been hosting the daily morning tea net is taking a short break and will return in early 2021 with a new structure. To keep the wheels turning, the amazing Dave VK2KFU has stepped in as net host, With Dave’s vast experience facilitating nets along with his own spin on “This Day in History” it is a very enjoyable net to be involved with.
Both nets are held on the VK2RAG 2 Metre repeater, 146.725Mhz with a 91.5hz sub audible tone.
