Introduction

The Alice Springs Amateur Radio Club is located in the Red Centre of Australia's Northern Territory. Our club is sociable and has members who have a wide range of interests. We aim to have fun while learning from each other. The Club has a very well equipped station VK8AR which visitors are welcome to use.

The Club has two repeaters located on West Gap. West Gap is the site for most of the town's radio and telecommunications antennas and is easily visible from most parts of Alice Springs.

VK8RCA,the 2 metre repeater has output on 146.950MHz and input on 146.350MHz with CTCSS of 91.5Hz. VK8RIT, the 70cm repeater has output on 438.525MHz and input on 433.525 with CTCSS of 91.5Hz. Visitors to the Alice are welcome to use both repeaters.

We also maintain a beacon VK8RAS which continuously transmits signals on 2 metres, 144.485MHz and 6 metres 50.046MHz for the benefit of fellow "Hams" down south.

An IRLP node was commissioned in February 2016 and is currently operating via the Club's 70cm repeater. Amateurs are advised that both sides of any QSO is broadcast and able to be heard around town.

Meetings

Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, commencing at 19:30, in the Bellman Hangar at the Aviation Museum. The Museum is located 150 metres south of Larapinta Drive, on the west side of Memorial Avenue. Look for the three engined 'Drover' RFDS aircraft mounted on a pedestal outside our meeting location.
