Activities late April early May

The Heywood Rally will require us on Saturday 27th April only. It’s an early start at 7:00AM. Peter VK5BE is managing this event.

Communication will be via the Portable repeater which operates on the Willalooka frequency 147.350 (your receiver) and 147.950 (your transmitter). Peter and Colin will have checked out communications the week before (20/4/19) and it is expected that the repeater will cover the required area.

The repeater has a 1 second tail but no beep. It has a 10 minute timeout.

The repeater is running on two antennas – both folded dipoles with the receiver on top so it’s expected that a handheld should get in okay.

The Generations in Jazz event is on from 3,4,5 May. Andrew VK5KET is managing this event. Volunteer times to be advised.

The portable repeater is being placed approximately 1km from the Generations in Jazz site and will provide rock crushing signals to the area. Again the frequencies are 147.350 (listen) and 147.950 (transmit).
