AREG General Meeting 16th November 2012

The Amateur Radio Experimenters Group next general meeting is Friday the 16th of November 2012.  So this coming Friday !

This months meeting is another general get together.  Last month saw a good number of members attend, and certainly a good night was had by all.  I’d certainly encourage any members that have been doing interesting things to continue to bring in their projects for others to oggle and discuss.

The invitation for the evening is extended to all persons who may be interested in amateur radio, AREG’s activities and see an amateur radio club in action, however the evening will be primarily focused around AREG’s activities, past, present and future.

So come along and visit at an AREG meeting, find out what the AREG is up to and participate in an evening with other amateur radio operators.

Coffee, tea, cake will be on for supper, that is provided we can remember where we left it last month.

We hope to see you there.

73, Matthew VK5ZM

IRLP node 6214

Due to the changes at VK5RSB with the requirement for the input CTCSS tone of 91.5Hz, the IRLP Node 6214 has now been transferred to the VK5RAD 70cm frequency, 439.925 MHz.

As AREG are the sponsors for both the 70cm repeaters, VK5RSB 439.900 and VK5RAD 439.925, AREG were planning changes with the IRLP node with the intention to transfer it to 439.925 in the future. However due to interference problems with VK5RSB necessitating implementing CTCSS on the repeater’s receiver, the transfer of the IRLP node 6214 has been brought forward.

AREG trusts that the transfer of the IRLP node 6214 is of value to the amateur community and that the system is available to all, including those who do not have the CTCSS capability in their radio equipment.

Ben VK5BB, 6214 node Administrator.

VK5RSB Repeater Input Tone

Due to interference issues, the VK5RSB repeater (Summertown), now requires a 91.5Hz CTCSS Input tone. Please update your radio memory channels accordingly!
