Central Coast Amateur Radio Club News – October 15, 2023
The club rooms at Kariong are open on Saturdays from 10:30am. As always, members and visitors are most welcome.
Folks may have noticed that there were problems with the relay of last weeks broadcast through VK2RAG, Somersby. Thanks to some analytical troubleshooting from Brad, VK2NMZ and a quick trip to site from Don, VK2ZCZ, the issue has been addressed, and today’s broadcast should be getting relayed correctly.
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.
The club Web SDR at Somersby. Websdr.ccarc.org.au is configured to listen on 6 metres, 2 metres, 70 centimetres and 23 centimetres.
The Morning Tea Net is run on weekdays at 10:00am and the Weekly net on Thursday at 8:00pm.
Both nets are run on on the VK2RAG repeater – 146.725MHz with a 91.5Hz sub-audible tone, and on the CCARCNSW and HAM Echolink conferences.
The Thursday evening net 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.
