MEETINGS


THE WAIKATO VHF GROUP .....

was founded on 16 June 1963 by 10 amateurs, to serve the VHF needs of amateur radio operators in the region. The Group has progressed from that time to the present with virtually the same objectives in mind. The Group has a very comprehensive net work of both VHF and UHF repeaters located at several strategic sites that cover a major portion of the North Island of New Zealand.


The objectives of the Group are: Amongst others;


1. To support the aims and objectives of the NZART

2. To foster local interest in Amateur Radio, particularly at VHF and higher frequencies


3. To establish and operate amateur transmitting and repeater stations

Without doubt these aims and objectives are more than adequately being catered for by this dedicated Group of Amateur Radio Operators.

Further details on the history of the Waikato VHF Group can be found here.

DMR for DUMMIES

Welcome to DMR for Dummies! Don't feel bad. Our name is NOT intended to be derogatory in any way, but it is a reality for all of us when we first pick up a DMR radio. The transition from an analog state-of-mind for all hams is a kind of stretch. It sure was for us. So we decided to do something about it. At D4D, you'll find many tips and tricks to help you gat started.
