Club Auction results

Thanks to everyone who attended and participated in the IARS November auction. The auction went very well with a huge selection of bargains.Example was a fully operational Kenwood TS-830S selling for $200.00, 😱 that was a steal. Many items followed the same route with the must sell philosophy this year and low reserves.

Mal VK2DXM seemed to have a never ending pit of money and scored many bargains on the evening, well done Mal your shack must be full.

A very big thank you to all that worked hard on the evening with special thanks to Simon VK2XQX who had us in stitches most of the time and MelB who worked many hours setting up the spreadsheet system.

A great evening, start saving now for next year.

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!
