During the WIA AGM and Conference we'll be using the Fremantle VK6RFM repeater for conference traffic. Maintained by the WA Repeater Group, you can set your radio up using 146.950 MHz as the output frequency and 146.350 MHz as the input. Thanks to Don VK6DN the repeater also hosts Echolink and IRLP so you can make contact with home base from your hotel room or throughout Fremantle and beyond. The Echolink node number is: 170709 and IRLP node number is 6200. Those numbers can also be found online at where you'll find a full list of repeaters and beacons in VK6.

Check the frequencies online, and if you're consulting this month's AR magazine, the gremlins got in and some of the frequencies there show the input frequency rather than the output frequency for some repeaters, so check online at for details.

In the week leading up to the conference, the Ham College Information Beacon, VK6RIB on 145.575 MHz will be transmitting information relating to the event. The information repeats every hour. You can listen to the beacon right now and you'll find the weekly news and other information there.
