Central Coast Amateur Radio Club News – September 3, 2023
The club rooms at Kariong are open on Saturdays from 10:30am. As always, members and visitors are most welcome.
Last Saturday was the most recent Show and Tell held at the club rooms. We had an enthusiastic group who were enthralled with what was on offer.
What started out as a show and tell on Phillips radios, progressed into a lecture on the conception of the
FM320 through to the FM650 with all variations in between-specifications and features.
Examples of these radios were on display.
All those attending were extremely satisfied!
Thank you to Glenn for hosting the Show and Tell.
Yesterday, at the monthly business meeting, the club filled out its committees. We would like to thank those not continuing for their hard work as well as those who are volunteering their time for the coming year. We also welcome Luis [pronounced Loo-ee] and Cheong [pronounced Chong] to the club as new members.
At the VK2RAG Somersby repeater site, the D-Star, Rad-Net DMR and 2m Echolink services are fully
functional. The 23cm repeater is back on air and is now linked with the 6m repeater. Today’s broadcast will be coming out on both 6m and 23cm as well as 2m.
