PROPOSED WORKING BEE AT BYRON REPEATER

Nothing definite at this stage but keep Sunday 27 May in mind for a working bee at the VK2RBB site.
We need to give the site another mow before winter as well as lowering the mast and fitting new guy wires and the new antennas.
More details as the day gets closer.  Site access is always weather dependent for this one.

WEB SDR NOW RUNNING IN CLUB SHACK

Rob  VK2ARL has set up sdr receivers in the club shack, for 80 and 40 metres. These can be accessed on-line at www.websdr.org. On the site main page, select the location ‘other’ and band ’40’. Then scroll down until you see the SARC logo, and click on the URL. Its quite easy to use, note that you don’t get the whole band, only a segment as seen on the waterfall.

You can transmit and see your own signal if it is received, from any selected sdr around the globe. You can also record any received audio. Note the requirement to have java and javascript enabled to make it work properly.
