Central Coast Amateur Radio Club News – August 27, 2023

The club rooms at Kariong are open on Saturdays from 10:30am. As always, members and visitors are most welcome.
On Friday evening, we linked up VK2RAG to listen to the a group of young people from the Australian Air
League in Salisbury South Australia chat with Warren Hoburg, KB3HTZ aboard the International Space
Station, through Claudio, IK1SLD. The Air League girls, boys, family, leaders, and hams present had a ball!
Timing was excellent. Some young folk were warned that if the astronaut gave wordy answers the time
might run out. But Woody was great. He heard every question clearly, and gave clear and succinct
answers, so all youngsters had a go.
Yesterday the club held our monthly show and tell. More on this next week.
The club will hold its monthly business meeting at the club rooms at 1pm next Saturday. Club members are asked to please consider volunteering on the various non-executive positions and sub-committees.
At the VK2RAG Somersby repeater site, the D-Star, Rad-Net DMR and 2m Echolink services are fully
functional. The 23cm repeater is currently off-air, being replaced.
The club Web SDR at Somersby. Websdr.ccarc.org.au is configured to listen on 6 metres, 2 metres, 70
