You can access TG8 on TS1 (used for regional QSOs) from a hotspot by using

TG x0008

where x is the TG8 region number.

Note that you are not restricted to the TG8 in your area – you can access them all if you want to.

This also applies to programming your radio for use via a repeater.

Program the TGs as follows:

10008 = VK7

20008 = All Sydney, nth NSW and Orange 

30008 = HighRange, Goulburn, Yass, Bombala and Canberra

40008 = N VK3: Bendigo, Shepparton, Mt. Wombat, Rennies Hill

50008 = Melbourne and S VK3

60008 = VK4 (apart from FNQ)

80008 = Central Coast and Hunter Valley NSW
