VK6RLM DMR back on line

Hi all,

After what seems like an eternity the VK6RLM DMR repeater is back on line with full connectivity to the Brandmeister network.

After getting HamNet to the site we had to work with the Brandmeister teams both in VK and the US, and then fix a fault with the repeater.

Thanks must got to Matt, VK6ML, for all his work.

The Output frequency of the repeater is 438.525 MHz with a -7MHz offset for the input.

TS1 is user access for whatever talkgroup you like. Just TX on that talkgroup and it will connect and remain connected for 15mins after no more local activity, at which time it will disconnect.

TS2 are statically mapped to TG505 (VK) and TG5056 (VK6).

Have a look at https://brandmeister.network/?page=repeater&id=505605

Reports and feedback welcome.

WARG June 2022 Meeting Postoned

Greetings WARG members,

Hope everyone is well – my apologies for lack of contact the past few weeks – somewhat unusual circumstances have limited my WARG focus since our May AGM, until the last day or so (In my case, a close family bereavement requiring a lot of family time, and more recently a dose of COVID!). Others have also been busy, for these reasons, little preparation has been done for the June meeting, scheduled for this coming Monday 13th.

My COVID aftermath means I am not available for this Monday, and several other Committee members have also been occupied, or are unwell and unable to attend. After consideration, the WARG Committee proposes that we skip the upcoming June meeting, and focus on the one scheduled for July 4th.

If anyone has concerns about this, please say ASAP – the WARG Committee is able to make decisions in between meetings and can progress any urgent business if required.

(A remote meeting via Skype may be possible – but if there are pressing issues that require a wider membership discussion, these are probably better done with some notice, and with good representation from WARG Committee – neither of which are feasible to achieve by this Monday).

Minutes from the recent AGM, and the following General Meeting are attached, along with the Treasurer’s and Membership reports from the General Meeting. As usual, E&OE, please let me know ASAP if any corrections or changes.

Apologies again for the short notice, it’s not been a great few weeks for me, I appreciate everyone’s understanding. Happy to discuss as required.

Regards and 73,
Anthony VK6AXB
President, WARG
