AREG April Meeting – VHF/UHF Contesting – 22nd April

AREG wishes to announce that due to our regular meeting night falling on the Easter Good Friday holiday this year, the committee has agreed to reschedule the April meeting to Friday 22nd . The meeting will be held both in person at the club rooms, (Fulham Community Centre, Phelps Crt, Fulham) and online using Zoom starting from 7.45pm ACST.

This meeting’s presentation is titled: “VHF/UHF Contesting – A Trilogy in 2 parts”

Do you remember a time when operating below 50MHz required CW and specialised license privileges? Are you new to the hobby and unaware that VHF/UHF is used for more than just fox-hunting and repeaters? If so, come and join Matthew VK5ZM and Grant VK5GR as we explore contesting on the higher VHF/UHF bands.   Perhaps this year is the year to dust off that shack-in-a-box radio you have stashed in a cupboard and come sit on top of a hill for an hour or two on a Sunday afternoon ?   Curious then join us on Friday the 22nd of April.
