Author : Richard Hoskin - VK3JFK

I'm please to inform you that Icom Australia have kindly donated a new D-Star repeater to the WIA for installation in the Canberra area. This is a donation to the WIA from Icom to celebrate 100 Years of the WIA. The announcement of this donation was made by Takashi Aoki, Manager of Icom Australia at the official WIA Centenary dinner.

The Canberra region amateur radio club will be the WIA D-Star Club responsible for the installation and operations of repeater on behalf of the WIA. The repeater will be operational on 2mtrs (Port C) and have the callsign of VK1RWN. The timeframe for the installation and operations of the VK1RWN repeater is yet to be determined.

Thank you to Icom Australia for this generous donation.
