    Fun with QRP

    This Wednesday night we have guest presenter Peter Parker VK3YE coming along to the clubrooms to give an impromptu presentation entitled "Fun with QRP - Equipment, Antennas & Operating".

    Peter is a prolific experimenter, broadcaster, videographer and author.

    His latest book - The Australian Ham Radio Handbook is now available in Jaycar! Take a look at his website for more information. http://vk3ye.com/

    We get underway in the clubrooms from 7:30pm and the presentation will be broadcast on RF and streamed on the REAST YouTube Channel.




    See you there.

    This night was born from a group looking at pictures and videos of various amateur's shacks.

    Steven VK7OO is currently getting his shack back up and running at his new house and he was asking different people about space saving ideas in the shack.

    Amateurs are usually resourceful people who have been re-purposing, recycling and re-using things for a very long-time.

    So, we have decided to have a forum where everyone can come along and bring your interesting and innovative ideas that you have in your shack, outside, inside, etc.

    There is no limit to the ideas - simple, complex, easy, hard, bring them along and talk about them. If you have some show and tell to demonstrate the idea then bring it along. You may have a problem or challenge that you are dealing with - bring

    that along and we are sure there will some ideas in the room to help you solve that issue.

    The format is a forum where everyone can input their ideas, questions, problems and solutions.

    See you there.

Regular Events

Given the recent advice from the Australian Government and Health Authorities about indoor events need 4 square metres per person, the committee has taken the regretful step of closing the clubrooms until further notice.

This affects the Wednesday afternoon group and the DATV Experimenter’s Night.

As things develop we will keep members in the loop through regular email and broadcast updates.
