Remembrance Day – Club Contest Station VK3ER!
VK3ER had a Successful weekend with the social club activation for the RD Contest. with a claimed score of 330 contacts over the 24 hrs (around 14hrs operating time) a solar storm hindered HF conditions, but we had fun working all we could hear. Thanks especially to Darrin (Vk3FDAP) who did most of the heavy lifting Saturday evening while the rest of us talked on the comfy couches.
The clubs repeater VK3REC (147.175Mhz) has been Repaired.
The repeater has had all works completed and is back to full operation. No further plans for changes exist at this time but some additional ideas of improvement are under discussion. The club will endeavour to fully communicate plans for changes should they occur. As always, the repeater and its operation is offered as a service to members of the CLUB as best we can deliver. Please contact the club for more details or to voice your concerns.
The next Foundation Course will be held on the weekend of 29&30 August 2015
