November WARG meeting – Working bee

Hello All! WARG’s next meeting is this coming Monday, November 4th. As per decision of the last meeting, the main activity will be a working bee, construction of repeater controller PCBs, VK6ZGN / VK6MT design. BYO soldering station, tools, etc, to join in the fun!

An extra folding table or two may also be useful, and/or bench mats, so we don’t drop solder or otherwise damage the surface of the venue’s existing tables.

The controller PCBs will be used in WARG’s newly-obtained Tait TB7100 repeater radios, as it offers more flexible operation than the radio’s inbuilt controller.

73, and Best Regards,
Anthony VK6AXB
Secretary, WARG.

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
