( F-Troop now have a new home on the web, you can find it at http://ftroop.vk6.net )
Well, you've got this shiny new Amateur Radio License with an F-call and you're all excited to start talking, but you're not sure what to do, who to start with and what to say. If this is you, then this is the place where you can meet others with the same background.
Every week we'll host a group talk on-air (a net) where you're welcome to tune in and shoot the breeze. We have only one rule, there's no such thing as a silly question, so if you've got it, then ask it and we'll see what we can do.
At the moment the F-troop host in VK6 is VK6FLAB, Onno.
The net is held at 8:00 (0:00 UTC) on Saturday on the Rolystone repeater, VK6RAP, on 146.700 MHz FM - with an input frequency of 146.100 MHz.
We understand that you may not yet know how to configure your radio for repeater operation, so over time - this was started on Sunday June 12, 2011 - we expect to have instructions here for radios that are being used on how to configure it for repeater use. If you've already figured it out, or had help, send us an email with instructions for your radio.
