With many having been surrounded by the same 4 walls as of late, some open space, minimal QRM and a sneaky long path DX station can be good for one’s health and wellbeing.
There might even be a sneaky Pedestrian fox hunt?
Weather pending of course!
If you are an avid portable operator, this would be a fantastic opportunity to show others your portable setup, maybe even some side by side comparisons between different radios?
The Club’s Thursday evening net this week was facilitated by Brad VK2NMZ. There were various topics of discussion ranging from home brew power supplies to the efficiency and usability of linked dipole antennas for portable operations (in light of the upcoming club outing)
With stations checking in from USA, UK, Germany and Caribbean Islands, It was an incredibly diverse net.
The Thursday evening net is held on the VK2RAG 2 Metre repeater, on 146.725Mhz; If you’re within range of our repeater, why not drop by?
Remember, you can view the live stream of the Thursday evening net from the club’s Facebook page, or join in via Echo link using the *CCARCNSW* conference server and more recently via IRLP reflector 9509.
