Introducing F-Troop - an on-air get together in Victoria

For some time there have been various suggestions that a weekly net on 2-metres be arranged as a meeting place for Foundation licensees.

Gary VK3FGAZ and Graeme VK3FTTG have gathered sufficient support for what is being to be called the 'F-Troop' net to discuss radio procedures and other areas of interest to new radio amateurs. Amateur Radio Victoria will help kick off the net this Sunday with Ross Pittard VK3FCE being net control, on the Mt Macedon 2-metre repeater VK3RMM 147.250MHz immediately after the VicLink mini-broadcast and callback.

The idea behind F-Troop is to get more experienced radio amateurs, such as WIA Assessors and course trainers, to provide advice and help in the spirit of amateur radio.

Standard and Advanced Licence holders will also be most welcome to join in.

The first F-Troop to get things going will be about 11.40am on Sunday the 28th of May.

Please don't just listen, join in and make it a useful and worthwhile exercise.
