Looking for a media hook to leverage some publicity for amateur radio has been effectively used by the revived Armidale and District Amateur Radio Club, located half-way between Sydney and Brisbane.

In the Armidale Express newspaper it honours the hard work done by Roger Chubb VK2FGE in trying to get the club going again. He sadly became a silent
key in May. President Rick Rodgers VK4HF saw a few people at the funeral and they decided to get the club going and dedicate it to Roger Chubb.

Three months later the WIA affiliated Northern Tablelands of New South Wales club has installed its VK2RAD VHF and UHF repeaters to keep the area in contact locally and the further afield Echolink. The repeaters provide a useful link for travellers using the New England Highway from Guyra to Uralla. Rick VK4HF and his team have some bigger plans including a possible digital television facility and classes with its two WIA assessors.
