We have been very lucky to have had a lifelong member run our Tuesday night nets. Bill VK3MMM has been in the hot seat for many years. I cannot remember a time when he has not been at his radio at 8.00pm on 146.425.
Whilst local members have no issue with joining the net. Other members who live further away report they cannot hear the net.
A recent discussion at the club regarding the use of a local two metre repeater resulted in. Mr Ken Millis who is the secretary of the Moorabbin & District Radio Club offered their two meter repeater VK3RMC to Famparc to run our Tuesday night net. We are most grateful to their club for this very kind offer.
Bill's radio has been set up, and found to fully quiet the repeater. Next Tuesday 12th July at 8.00 pm Bill will open the net through the repeater. Members will require to tune their radio as follows 147.325 up 147.925 and include a tone of 91.5
Please be aware the Moorabbin radio club holds their net meetings on a Wednesday. Please avoid disturbing their meetings, or you are most welcome to join in for a chat.
As one Famparc member suggested, perhaps we could all monitor this repeater at other times.
