WARG Repeater Coverage Maps

Just uploaded a new page for repeater coverage maps. At this stage for the Perth Metro area only, but more will follow shortly.

Also going to try and embed a google maps interface so you can zoom in on any sections you wish to see more detail for an area.

You will find the link at the top of the “Repeater” page via the menu. The repeater page has also been upgraded to provide a better view of all repeaters and services in the one place. It also makes it easier to manage from a web site point of view 🙂

Thanks and 73

Website Upgrade

Hi all,

Just letting you know that we are in the process of upgrading the website. During this process some links may break, but we hope to have the upgrade completed in the near future.

Thanks for your patience. 73.

NEW Meeting Venue from June 2017

Due to some over active white ants, WARG has has to find a new meeting venue. Keeping the link between WARG and the Scouts, we will be metting at the Pelican Point Sea Scouts hall, Australia II Drive, Crawley. This move is until the redevelopment of the Peter Hughes Scout Communication Cenre has been completed. Our firs meeting at the new venue will be the 12th June 2017.

AGM and Equipment Auction!

A reminder that WARG’s next meeting on Monday May 2nd is our AGM – and will feature an equipment auction at the close of proceedings.

As usual, the main business of the AGM is to elect a new Committee for the coming year. Whilst many of WARG’s office holders intend to re-nominate – including myself as Secretary – this is an opportunity for others who are financial members of WARG and want to contribute more to the running of the group.

WARG’s committee aims to always operate in a collaborative fashion, and not to take over discussions or make decisions which should be the property of the wider group. The AGM is an important night and we look forward to seeing you there, at WARG’s usual meeting venue, the Peter Hughes Scout Communications Centre, corner of Gibbs St and Welshpool Rd, East Cannington.

All are welcome to attend. Doors will be open at 7, for a 7:30 start. Treasurer John will be on hand to take payments from any members who haven’t yet renewed. A short General meeting will also take place, alongside the AGM. Tea & coffee are available, and there’s usually time for socialising before and after the meeting.

WARG Treasurer John VK6JAH advises that the auction is on behalf of the estate of Syd VK6SMH (SK) who sadly passed away last year, his family have asked WARG to assist in disposing of remaining equipment. All the gear is said to be in working order, but the WARG Committee has had no opportunity to fully test any item. As such no warranty can be given regarding the working condition or otherwise of any item offered.

All procedes from the sale of the equipment will go to WARG funds.
