Comming up

Two representatives from RASA, the Radio Amateur Society of Australia, will be attendance at our May meeting!

Ian VK3BUF and Chris VK3QB have offered to come along and both present, explain and discuss their reasons for a second representative body for Australian Amateurs.

Whatever member’s thoughts are about either the WIA or RASA, all of us should endeavour to always best understand both sides of any situation.

With this in mind, attending members and visitors will be able to explore their thoughts and concerns with Ian and Chris who believe that RASA is not a divisive influence, but more a healthy competition, thus inspiring everyone to work harder for our hobby.

It’s sure to be a most interesting meeting whatever “side of the fence” you may sit !

Hello all!

Just a friendly reminder that the next meeting of the Illawarra Amateur Radio Society will be held on the 12th of June at 7:30pm at Coniston Community Hall.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Refurbished Hall

Our meeting place has recently undergone a major overhaul. In addition to accessibility improvements, there is new flooring, roofing, heating and lighting. The wait was worth it!

Just a friendly reminder that the next meeting of the Illawarra Amateur Radio Society will be held on the 8th of May at 7:30pm at the Coniston Community Centre. The Centre has been refurbished and we can’t wait to check out the old hangout.

The next meeting will be a SHOW & TELL, bring along pictures and projects of something you have been working on or even some plans of future projects.

It is always great to see what other like minded radio enthusiasts are working on and may even give you some ideas on how to make your projects better

Bring your pictures on a USB stick ​as there is a overhead projector to use​ and there is a white board also available.

At the meeting you will also have the opportunity to order a DMR radio. The deal discussed at the last meeting indicated a good price for a QTY of DMR rigs.

Speak to Jesse VK2ZJB at the meeting to firm up your order.

After the meeting we can have our usual cuppa, chat with mates and grab a few biscuits.

The presentation will be by Max VK2ARZ on the design, installation and testing of wire antennas. Max has a knack for putting things together using just the odds laying around your shack, a good way to build your next antenna without spending too much coin.

Please note this will be our first meeting for 2018 as there is no meeting in January.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
