Club Activities & Events

The club also conducts a regular on-air net on the first and third Wednesday of the month. The net starts at 8pm on the Port Pirie VK5RMN 2 metre repeater 146.700MHz.

The purpose of the net is to allow members - local and remote - to contact each other via amateur radio communications from the City of Whyalla and to maintain contact with all possible participants.

Although the net is based in Whyalla, all amateurs are welcome and encouraged to check in and participate.

If you are listening to our net - but we can't hear you due to the conditions or you are only rx and not tx - we encourage and ask you to email us please.
