Central Coast Amateur Radio Club News – July 30, 2023

The club rooms at Kariong are open on Saturdays from 10:30am. As always, members and visitors are most welcome.
Yesterday the club held an Introduction to Arduino workshop, presented by Graham VK2GRA, which was
well attended and received.
Congratulations to all those who passed exams at the recent education weekend.
Notifications have been emailed out for the club’s Annual General Meeting to be held at the clubrooms at
1pm on next Saturday, August 5. Please ensure any remaining nominations are submitted. Note that only
current financial members are eligible to vote and be nominated for positions.
On that note, members are reminded that renewals are due and membership forms have been sent out and need to be completed. Unfinancial members will be removed from contact lists after today.
There are rumours of something brewing in the Central Coast area. It’s not clear exactly what, but it might be a good idea to write down the 5th of May, 2024 in our diaries and keep an ear out for updates.
The CCARC repeater committee are considering linking the 23cm and 6m repeaters together with a 70cm
frequency and would be interested in hearing any thoughts on the idea. If you have any input, please email ccarc@ccarc.org.au.
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
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.

73, from Alan VK2MG
Publicity Officer, Central Coast Amateur Radio Club.
