The club VK6SR used to broadcast the newswest and wia national news broadcast yet now they don't many foundation licence candidates because of this miss out on getting a ham licence we don't hear anything anything on our scanners so don't we know when courses are on and we only get part of the information or not all.

Have you considered joining the club and offering to help with the broadcasts?

Southern Electronics Group (VK6SR) is currently testing a script to download and play the WIA & VK6 News Broadcasts across repeaters in Albany, Mt Marker & Manjimup on Sunday mornings. Still a few more bugs to iron out before putting it on air with confidence, but time permitting hopefully will be ready to go in the next few weeks. 8)

Albany repeater is now also on 70cms, 438.025MHz is the frequency. The 2m repeater is no longer in service.
