Amateur Radio Experimenters Group


P.O. Box 921 MODBURY S.A. 5092
Club rooms, Phelps Court, Fulham South Australia 5024


The Amateur Radio Experimenters Group was formed in July 1998. The members of the Club come from all walks of life and even includes some people who don't work in the electronics industry.

AREG has a practical focus. Members have a strong interest in the technical aspect of our hobby and this is reflected in some of our activities, such as fox hunting ballons, putting together the local D-Star repeater system, playing with software defined radios and assisting other VK5 groups with technical support when requested.

We have built and maintain three of Adelaide's premiere repeaters VK5RWN (D-STAR), VK5RSA (438.025) and VK5RSB (439.900),(53.750) and (1273.500), with 439.900 being connected to the internet via IRLP (node 6214) and occasionally Echolink to provide a worldwide FM quality service.

AREG is also the VK5 custodian of the VK5RWN D-Star repeater system.

If you are interested in becoming a member of an active practical club, come along to our next meeting, there is always lots to do and learn at AREG!
