WARG Subscriptions are now due for 2022/2023

To all members of the West Australian Repeater Group Inc.

Thank you very much for your continued support over the last year. With
COVID-19 impacting our meetings so much, it has definitely been a
difficult year for all of us.  With your subscriptions, you have kept WARG
on air for another year, and helped improve our network of repeaters in VK6.

The time has come for subscriptions to be paid for the 2022/2023 period.

WARG Annual Subscriptions are still only $25 per year. One of the cheapest clubs in VK6.

Subscriptions can be paid by bank transfer as usual to the following account:

BSB 633 000 Account No. 144144953 at Bendigo Bank.
Remember to identify yourself with your call sign when transferring funds
so we know who it is from.


Electronic funds transfer is preferred, but we still take cheques to PO
Box 2513 Mt. Claremont 6010 or cash at meetings and events.

For any membership enquiries, please email membership@warg.org.au

Next WARG Meeting 7th February 2022 – Remote

Hello All,

Apologies for the late notice, but the next WARG meeting this Monday 7th February will not be an in-person gathering, but take place remotely, via a Skype link.

The link has been set up courtesy of Matt VK6ML, It will be opened up at 7pm  on Monday 7/2/2022, and stay open for the duration of the meeting.

For visitors and others wishing to join the meeting, please ask them to contact myself, WARG Secretary VK6AXB via secretary@warg.org.au , I will contact them and email the link to them directly.

WARG Committee has decided not to proceed with a face-to-face meeting this Monday for two main reasons – firstly, the uncertainty about Covid cases circulating in the metro area, and also because several key members can’t attend in person on Monday night (myself included), but are OK with remote attendance.

I am finalising documents for the meeting and these will be sent tomorrow….

73, and Best Regards,

Anthony VK6AXB

Secretary, WARG

Next WARG meeting 7th February 2022

Next WARG meeting 7th February 2022

WARG’s first meeting for 2022 is this Monday, 7th February. The meeting was to be Face to Face gathering at the usual venue, but may change to be an online or remote format. This is because a number of key members are unable to travel to Perth, plus the current COVID situation is also a factor.

Exact meeting details are being circulated by email to members prior to the meeting and publicised online where possible, eg: WA Hams. WARG apologises for any inconvenience caused, we are trying to keep up…!

Stay tuned to this channel for further updates.

Pogo Stick Antenna Build night

At the General Meeting last night, we also held a Pogo Stick Antenna build night.

Most of the night was spent testing different lengths of cable to get the perfect SWR for the antenna. As is the case with R&D it always takes the majority of time…..

Finally we were able to get a good SWR for 146MHz or 1.1:1

Big thanks to Craig for fetching supplies, Anthony, Trevor, Mark, John, Bob, Ray, Trevor and Christine for attending and helping in one way or another.

1st November will be the next WARG General Meeting, and we will be building even more antennas on the night.

Pogostick antennas are available from WARG Shop. They can usually be bought at Swap meets that we attend.
