The globe is certainly experiencing unprecedented difficulties and hardship in modern times. There is little doubt there will be much anguish and uncertainty for a long time to come.
The Riverland Radio Club is very mindful of the strain this is and will place on our radio community. Like many radio clubs many of our members fall into the vulnerable category for a variety of reasons.
To this end our Club has opted to suspend ALL Club face to face contact, including Business Meetings and Tech Nights, to play our small part in flattening the curve. We recognise this action increases the sense of isolation which we feel is in conflict with mental well-being.
So to support our members though this uncertain time we have committed to undertake the following:
- Business Meetings for Club members to convened over the VK5RLD repeater;
- Tech Nights replaced with a 80m (3650kHz) Net, all welcome;
- Members, and all comers, are encouraged to join the WIA News Re-broadcast call backs; and
- Check into the RRC BRL Nets
- Sat & Wed, 7115kHz, 0830hrs local
- Tue, 3610kHz, 2000hrs local).
To all the HAM community, stay safe, stay well, stay vigilant.
