  President's Notes
Chris VK3QB It was great to see so many members turn up for the working bee at the end of May. Not only did we prune a lot of overhanging branches but we also cleaned the Shack roof and skylights. If that wasn't enough, we also fixed up the mountings for the "inverted L" antenna as well as the Off Centre Fed Dipole. Mike and Steve set up a microwave link to the shack that will ultimately allow our computer to connect to the Internet.

  DC Another Option
Even though today most of the electricity transmission lines are alternating current ones, in some cases direct current lines are also used. And researchers are becoming aware that in some cases direct current lines are more suitable than alternating current ones.

  Aussie Distance Records
On May 13, Alan Devlin, VK3XPD, and David Smith, VK3HZ, set and subsequently extended the Australian 76/78 GHz distance record on both SSB and digital (WSJT/JT65C) modes. Their initial contacts were over a 64 km 40 mile) line-of-sight path. SSB Reports were 57 to 58, while and the digital contact signals were -14 dBm both ways. These records were subsequently extended to 90 km and 127 km later that same day.

  Wanted To Buy
I am looking for "Werner Wulf type" HB9-Butternut, ground plane type, multi band, vertical antenna for 10 / 15 / 20 / 40 Mtrs. From memory, there was one that included 80 mtrs as well.
