VK6 news relay Sunday evening

Clayton VK7ZCR relays the RASA and VK6 Newswest broadcast at 1930 hours Hobart time on Sundays

TG5, slot 1.

TG 1 and 13 now static for DX

Talk Groups 1 (WW calling) and 13 (WW English calling) are now static (always on) on all VKDMR repeaters.

1 and 13 are carried on most UK and US DMR repeaters, so there should be DX traffic when people in those countries are awake.

Don’t forget to QSY to TG113 or 123 once you have established comms with the DX station on 1 or 13.

The plan is to run 1 and 13 static as a trial and review the arrangement in a few months.

RAOTC broadcast

The Radio Amateurs Old Timer’s Club (RAOTC) will run a broadcast on TG5 at 1100 Eastern daylight savings time on the first Monday of the month, commencing on 2nd December 2019.

2020 broadcasts will commence on 3rd February. 

Second Adelaide DMR repeater on test

VK3RWW is temporarily active in Adelaide for 2 weeks.

438.150 – 5.4 MHz

TG8 on slot 1 and 3805 on slot 2 are connected to the other Adelaide DMR repeater.


Parrots are now available for radio and hotspot users. The parrot will repeat your audio back to you – this allows setting of audio levels.

Both use TG9990

For hotspot users, use TG9990 on TS1

For RF users via a repeater, use TG9990 on TS2

VK3RWV joins the network

2M DMR repeaters

At the moment, all of the network repeaters operate on 70cm, with the exception of Darwin.

As we all know, 2m is better suited to rural applications because of improved coverage.

Most of us use mono band 70cm radios, but if there was a 2m DMR repeater available in a rural/regional area that currently had no UHF DMR coverage, people would have the incentive to purchase a VHF radio….

Is your club interested in a 2m DMR repeater? If so, please contact Peter VK3TE.

VK-DMR and Brandmeister TGs now shared

The TG 380x groups on the VKDMR Network are now shared with the 505x Groups on VK Brandmeister network.
