Welcome to the VK2RAG’s QRZ page!
LoremVK2RAG is one of the call signs of the Central Coast Amateur Radio Club, based in Kariong & Somersby near Gosford on the central coast of New South Wales, Australia.
VK2RAG is a series of repeaters on 6m, 2m and 70cm, analogue and digital which include FM, IRLP, D-STAR, APCO-25, APRS and DMR. They are run by the CCARC for the benefit of radio amateurs on the Central Coast, NSW and surrounding suburbs.
The club participates in the 4 VHF/UHF field day contests, the John Moyle contest and the RD contest each year. As of 2011, we have also started supporting ILLW, activating Nobbys Head lighthouse in Newcastle, NSW. The call will be active again this year in the Jamboree on the air (JOTA) working with the Gosford District scouts.
The club’s other callsigns are VK2AFY – mostly used from the club shack in Kariong and VK2WFD used each year for the “Wyong Field Day” the largest amateur radio meeting in the southern hemisphere each February.
Another call sign operated by the CCARC is VK2RTG which runs the Kariong-based Repeaters which include the ATV repeater.
