VK6RGN has moved back to the Moresby Range again
but independent of any other organisation for housing or power.
We wish to thank Bev VK6DE for providing it with a home for some time.
The foundation for the cabinet is in place and a new repeater
based on two Tait ex-commercial sets has been made up.
The ID will be at 10 wpm Morse and also by a voice announcement.
The Northampton repeater already has a voice ID.
Our technical officer is Graham Drage VK6KAE and it is Graham
that we have to thank for the new repeater construction and
We no longer have any input into Exams or training
and there is no one under the new rules
capable of supervision or examination invigilation.
We are all old-timers and support one another but
younger people would be encouraged to join and participate.
However, without the teaching and examination facilities
we can not see the group running for a lot longer.
We are compiling a history of the GARG with the assistance of Ian Clinch
who was a member in the 1960's and has now moved from Greenough to
and has shown interest in resuming his connections.
