We held our first day open for some months yesterday, thank you to the members who attended and followed the
health order. It’s good to be back.
The daily morning tea net continues. A massive thanks go out to Bob and Dave for running these nets, you will
be sure to learn a little piece of history each day.
Adrian VK2ABS our youngest club member who is an avid SSTV fan hosts a net every 2 weeks. Held each
fortnight on the Club’s 2 Meter WICEN repeater 147.125 MHz with 91.5 Hz tone. The net consists of 2-3 rounds
predominately in Scottie-2 mode. Adrian has had a large amount of support from other members and would love
to see you drop in. The next net is scheduled for Friday the 22nd October at 7:30 PM.
Alan VK2MG ran ran a much more informal Thursday night net this week. The net is run every Thursday night at
8:00pm on the club’s 2m VK2RAG repeater – 146.725 with 91.5Hz tone.
The SSTV and Weekly nets are also video streamed live to the club’s Facebook page.
Our IT Team are experimenting with a websdr that is destined for the Somersby repeater site.
Websdr.ccarc.org.au is currently configured to allow four users to listen on 2 metres with a number of presets.
The club’s Brand Meister DMR repeater is still having problems. The Echolink and IRLP systems remain offline,
but we have the replacement unit and testing and configuration is looking promising..
D-Star and Radnet DMR repeaters are fully functional.
You can find out more about the CCARC on the web at www.ccarc.org.au; via telephone on 02 4340 2500 or
