Club Activities & Events
The club also conducts a regular on-air and ZOOM net on the first  and third Wednesday of the month. The net starts at 8pm on the Port  Pirie VK5RMN 2 meter repeater 146.700MHz

The 2m Net meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month and on ZOOM on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. (ZOOM details are available from the Club Seretary - email: jgroffen1@duck.com)

A Club social night is held every 2nd Wednesday of the month commencing at 7:00pm. Visitors are very welcome.

The purpose of the net is to allow members - local and remote - to  contact each other via amateur radio communications from the City of  Whyalla and to maintain contact with all possible participants.
Although the net is based in Whyalla, all amateurs are welcome and encouraged to check in and participate.

If you are listening to our net - but we can't hear you due to the  conditions or you are only rx and not tx - we encourage and ask you to  email us please.

Club members are also active on Amateur Television with evening sessions from 7:00pm local time, 7 days/week on 445.500MHz.
