The WIA has been advised by the Radio and Electronics Association of Southern Tasmania (REAST) that the club did not consider it had the resource at this time to establish a D-Star repeater to serve the Hobart area, and so Icom Australia has agreed to donate a second D-Star repeater to the WIA to serve the large Sydney area.

The WIA, after consultation with Icom Australia has announced that two clubs have been identified as D-Star clubs to serve the Sydney area.

The two clubs are the Manly Warringah Radio Society (Incorporated), and the Illawarra Amateur Radio Society Inc.

WIA Director Phil Wait, in making the announcement said “I am delighted that these two clubs, with their locations providing exceptional coverage to the north and south of Sydney and with highly skilled and experienced members are supporting this project.”
