We may also have a new member of the club who hopes to attend our next meeting.

Club Repeater

The club repeater is looking for a more accessible location so more people can use it. Please let us know if you know of one so it can be checked out.


JOTA will be held again this year. Please contact Stuart VK4MSL for more details.

Club Fees

Club Fees are now due $20.00. Please pay before 24th September. After this date it will cost $25.00 to renew. The extra cost is for late payment not a general increase in fees.

Club Badges

If you haven't been issued with a club badge please let me know so I can place an order. If you require a replacement badge eg changed callsign, lost etc one can be ordered but you will have to pay whatever the cost is per badge.

All for this month
