WELCOME TO SARC The LATEST NEWS
BIG CLEAN UP
A handful of members tore through the clubrooms Sunday 5th in a massive Spring Cleaning effort. Lots of junk was thrown out. We also sorted through some of the equipment we’ve been given in the past few months. The pictures show that we’re ready for this week’s standard course and the foundation course on the coming weekend.
Check out the display shelving to the left of the whiteboard. Some of the items
are simply old. Others are part of SARC history. Worth a look next time you’re
in the clubrooms.
BOM BOM ENDURO COMPLETED
WICEN (Northern Rivers Region) held a field training exercise in conjunction with the Jackadgery and Clarence Endurance Horse Riders on the weekend of 28&29 October. The event took place just south of Grafton with most of the ride within the Bom Bom State Forest. The first riders started at 0330 Sunday and it was a fairly easy time with only a moderate number of riders and mostly good weather.
We provided radio support for their event in the form of progress and welfare reporting as riders passed through two checkpoints. We used simplex 146.550 MHz, after unsuccessfully trialing a 3 MHz repeater shift with no cavities.
NEW HEX-BEAM AT CLUBROOMS
The old yagi at the clubrooms has come down, replaced by a new home-built hex beam. Now just waiting for connection of feedline and rotator control line, and we are back in business on HF from the club shack.
