Friday night Net
NOTICE: The “Thank God It’s Friday Net” has been moved to Tuesday nights. Apparently it interfered with the only PARTY evening of the week, well we can’t argue with that. Therefore from next week the TGIF net will be on Tuesdays at 8.30pm on 3.630Mhz. Please join us for an hour of some HF testing and chatting. By unanimous show of hands the name will remain as is. So catch you on the TGIF on TGIT
Combined Clubs Field Day and Barbecue Lunch
The Illawarra Amateur Radio Society and the Mid South Coast Amateur Clubs will joining together to hold a field day.
The main activity will be activations of National Parks in the WWFF program. The main modes of activation will be using 2 metre and 70cm rather than the usual HF frequencies.
This will be possible because of the number of National Parks in close proximity in our area.
These frequencies will also provide the opportunity for those who cannot get out to the field day to make contact with those operating portable in the National Parks.
