Big Hill Location

Another fun Wednesday activity night.   We use the IRLP function on our 2m repeater to talk to amateur radio operators in Australia.  Fourteen of our members joined the group to connect to IRLP node 6060 of the Central Coast Amateur Radio Club https://www.ccarc.org.au/.   We chatted with VK2NMZ, Brad, VK2AOR, Bob, VK2FOMG, Jay on the repeater in Australia.  It was 1pm local time on the Central Coast of Australia and a few of the CCARC members were able to take some time out of their workday to chat with us.  On our end, KN6HZM, Austin made his first out of country amateur radio contact.  Thanks to Bob, W1RH for making the secondary node available when the primary node computer failed.   Hope everyone had a good time.
