The AREG has designed, built, supports and maintains three premiere repeater sites located through out the Adelaide and Metro area.
The list below are those core repeaters and services that AREG support through our membership fees, in-kind donations and the generosity of our members donating their spare time and materials.
If you are a regular user of any of these repeater services have you considered joining AREG to support your local repeater? The AREG receives no additional funding from state or national bodies to help offset the costs of these services, so please consider supporting the club that supports you !

What is the announcement on this repeater about traffic being logged?
Unfortunately since approximately 2013 this repeater has been one of the targets of “trolls” and malicious interference. Despite being reported to the ACMA, the perpetrators have not yet been found. AREG is currently recording all traffic on the repeater in order to continue to provide information to the ACMA about the interference in the hope that it can eventually be dealt with. Meanwhile, the announcement is there to alert people to the recorder that is running.
If you can provide any DF bearings of the malicious signals including signal strength, direction and time, we can use that information in addition to the data being collected and sent to the ACMA. Please contact the club with any details you have.
