About the Club Library.

  • The library has an extensive holding of radio and electronics magazines and technical reference books.These have been donated to the club by members over many years. Please respect the efforts of those people, many who are now silent key: in particular, that of the club’s former librarian and local school teacher, the late Bill Cross, VK2WJC.
  • The SARC Librarian is VK2ACD, Chris Meagher – ua.gr1505918987o.aiw1505918987@dca21505918987kv1505918987
  • The library collection is stored at the clubroom. Items are NOT available for loan. If you want a copy of something, you can contact the librarian via email, and he will copy and forward it to you. We request a donation for this service,  which will be determined according to what is involved.
  • A facility is now available at the clubroom so you can scan pages and save to your thumb drive or CD.
  • Items MUST NOT be taken from the clubroom. The collection is too important to lose any part of it, no matter how good your intentions might be.
