VK3RMH - NERG Repeaters & Beacons

(Currently OFF AIR)

Prior to November 2012, VK3RMH was located in Wattle Glen,
a rural outer North-Eastern suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Ever increasing costs of leasing the tower and electricity have made the
Wattle Glen tower unviable for a small amateur radio club.
The tower lease has been terminated and the club is considering alternative locations,
including one not too far away in Briar Hill.

The club has two repeaters and two beacons under the callsign VK3RMH.
All were located in the outer North-East metro region of Melbourne, in the Research,
Kangaroo Ground & Wattle Glen area, Grid locator QF22OH.
Current beacon and repeater status and reports can be found on www.vklogger.com
(select the band of interest or enter VK3RMH as the search callsign).
