With restrictions in New South Wales progressively easing, the club has their fingers crossed that club activities will be able to resume soon.
Whilst access to the clubrooms are restricted, works still continue in the background and the club would like to make special mention to new club members Geoff VK2FGSE, Dave VK2FBRA, Matthew VK2FAEM, Fiona VK2FTEA, Jesse VK2FGOD, David VK2JDD and Ray VK2HJW.
Geoff, Dave, Matthew, Fiona and Jesse Sat for their foundation training & assessment earlier this year with our club’s education facilitator Karen VK2AKB and all passed successfully.
Did you know the Clubs education facilitator Karen VK2AKB is an AMC Level 3 assessor and the club has the capability to perform remote assessment sessions? If you are interested, please reach out to by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The club’s executive team have been in discussions with surrounding clubs on future collaboration initiative’s placing a key focus on how amateur radio is perceived today amongst the community and would love to hear from other clubs within Australia who may be interested.
With many club members spending more time at their QTH, we’re hoping that you have been able to do some work on your shack or finish that long-standing project. The Clubs Website Admin Henrick VK2FTDR would love to have a few photos and a small write up for the club’s future publications.
The club wishes to say a special thanks to Bob VK2AOR for hosting an “Are you okay” net at 10:00 AM each day. This has been an incredible initiative and the Bob receives an average of 15 check-ins each day from stations both local and afar. Today will be day 51 of this net now and the club has even had a few international stations drop by to say hello. Absolutely amazing!
If you’re within range of our repeater, why not drop by? Check ins are also welcomed via the clubs Echolink & IRLP services.
The clubs Thursday evening net continues successfully at 8:00 PM with varying topics of discussion each week. The club has numerous stations checking in from interstate and even overseas. A mention goes to Robert KA0YCU from Kansas who checks in each week via Echolink.
Remember, you can view the live stream of the Thursday evening net from the clubs Facebook page, join in via Echo link using the *CCARCNSW* conference server or even watch later on the clubs YouTube channel.
Both nets are available via the VK2RAG 2 Meter repeater 146.725Mhz
You can find out more about the CCARC on the web at ccarc.org.au or the clubs Facebook page, just search for Central Coast Amateur Radio Club.
