Our repeater an digi is a 10 min. Round trip from the club and it still takes us time to get things done.!

My one regret is that I was unable to experience "normal" vhf aprs coverage in that part of the state because I think it would have been even more impressive than it already was.

>> Hello all,
>> The Tamworth radio club has had several Digi's stop working, RCC being one.
>> VK2RTM stopped following the passage of a bunch of storms. A 65A CB was tripped. The radio was found not transmitting on 31/12/12 and was replaced this last Sunday 5/1/14. 2 of 4 hour round trips + time at site.
>> VK2RCC stopped receiving sometime. Suspect the radio as well but have not got to it yet. 8 hour round trip.
>> Mt Kaputar near Narrabri has also stopped. 6 hour round trip.
>> As each digi is a day trip it takes time to get around to them and then we need to have access to some sites made available by others (this is usually during work hours) - so please be patient, we are working on getting them going.
>> We have had TNC's stop and start ok after a power down then back up along with radio failures. We have ordered more hardware and am looking for some more.
>> Back to work I go - all the best for 2014
