If you visit Sydney Australia, get on the Paddington repeater (VK2ROT) 147.025 (+600Khz & ctcss 91.5hz) and the members of the Waverley Amateur Radio Society (WARS) will welcome you.

Please feel free to use the IRLP on node 6250 , 438.575 (minus 5Mhz offset, 91.5 tone). We also now have echolink on 438.575 repeater as VK2BV-R node 725953 . This repeater also has P25 available NAC 293.

We also run a D-star repeater VK2RBV (70 cm) on 438.775 -5Mhz offset. It is internet enabled. Covereage will soon be awesome as it is being sited on a tall building in Sydney CBD, 227 Mtrs above sea level.

I'm also a member of the Hellenic Amateur Radio Association of Australia (HARAOA) and have been on several DXpeditions to interesting islands, Norfolk Island (2009-VK9NI), Broughton Island (2010-VI2BI),  Montague Island (2010-VI2MI & VK2CL), Lord Howe Island (2011 -VK9HR), Bare Island (2014-VK2CL).

PS, my "lifetime" UK reciprocal callsign is M0GDY from 28 June 2007 (but it might have expired by now). I on the other hand, am not yet expired!smiley
