Breaking news, due to the extreme noise levels that most of us mere urban dwellers suffer these days it was decided to trial a new Sunday evening Club net frequency of 28.450 MHz (USB). This is a trial during the Summer months, whether it works is now up to the members to check in at 7.45pm each Sunday evening.
The Mt Glorious 2m repeater 147.000MHz repeater is now back on air. The replacement is pictured, Tait T800 series 1, cavities are Sinclair, antennas are the same, 4 x folded dipoles. No tone is required for access, however for the owners of radios that get overloaded by strong adjacent signals there is now a 91.5Hz CTCSS tone on the output.
Everyone should be happy to know that the 70cm Repeater EchoIRLP node is now back on air. The IRLP number is 6400, Echolink number 4666.
Did you know that the club's Mt Glorious and Wamuran 2m and 70cm repeaters are Echolink and IRLP capable? All three systems are Raspberry PIs and a modified IRLP board, located at members houses who have kindly donated some of their Internet bandwidth, transmitting and receiving with Yaesu FT7800 and FT7900 radios.
Using them is simple, fo IRLP punch in the node number (after announcing of course), for Echolink preceed the node number with an asterix (*). To hang up, 73 or hash (#).

4th Monday - Fox Hunt
And also open Wednesday mornings from 9 to 12pm & trialling Saturday mornings from 9AM
