Club HF Net
On Monday night last 29th a test was conducted by Bill VK4TWS on various bands but was not successful this stage the Monday night nets will be on 28.450MHz as usual. We are looking at constructing a squid pole antenna for 10mtrs so that all will be on the same polarity for the net.
BARCFest is not far away now so please attend to help out on the day 8th MAY!!
The club repeater is still at my QTH for the present.The repeater is no longer on test as the frequency change has been approved by ACMA and is on at all times.
Field day venues
Ron VK4EV is still open to suggestions for a venue for a field day where vehicles can be parked off bitumen or concrete. If you know of one let him know.
That is all for this month
