WICEN SA News for 25th February 2024.
This is the transcript from the WICEN SA news segment broadcast on the VK5 Sunday broadcast on 25th February 2024
 
A important note for your diaries, the next WICEN S.A. Net will be held next Sunday 03rd March 2024 20:00hrs Local time which just happens to be next weekend utilizing the Adelaide Linked Repeater Network.

The net on the 03rd March will be a special event net incorporating the WICEN S.A. Digital Working Group which has recently been formed.

WICEN S.A. Digital Format Working group which is being championed by Mr Stef Daniels VK5HSX and his team will be hosting this net on Sunday 03rd March and following the initial net we will be trialing the JS8 Call Digital messaging format which the Digital Group has been working on and has been formed by members to advise and develop Digital Messaging Modes that might be suitable to enhance our capabilities in the field for WICEN S.A.

Everyone is invited to participate in this net and if you are a WICEN S.A. Member or one of our wonderful volunteers. Over the next week you will be receiving an email from Arno VK5ZAR inviting you to participate in this net and the trial of JS8 Call Digital Messaging Software with a Zoom Link attached to the email so that Zoom can be accessed on the night.  A Zoom link will be on sent by Arno Vk5ZAR via email during the week for those Amateurs who may require assistance with set up of JS8 in real time or with questions in relation to setting up their transceivers on the night.

You do need to download the JS8 Digital Software prior to the night (Free Software)  and have it installed on your PC or Laptop to be able to participate in this special net and you can download it from https://js8call.com ......................I say again  now that you have your pencils ready,  the download site is https://js8call.com
Most modern Transceivers have a sound card built into them and it is merely the task of connecting a CAT / USB Cable to the back of the Transceiver and then to the PC. It can also be achieved by using a signal link device or other devices which are compatible to interface the sound card. 

We are inviting all Amateurs to participate in this net to assist us in trialing whether JS8 is an effective mode for communication in the field for WICEN S.A. but also is it effective mode of communication for you to communicate from your home QTH to other amateurs
Our Zoom link is capable of hosting 100 operators on the night .
If you have further questions prior to the night  or you need clarification please refer to the WICEN S.A. Facebook Page.

You do not have to be a WICEN S.A. Member or Volunteer to participate in this net and all licensed amateurs, no matter what your license level are welcome to participate in this net, so don't be afraid of pushing that PTT Button and come up for a chat, as I said everyone is warmly welcomed to participate in the WICEN S.A. Local Net on the Adelaide Linked Repeater Network.

We are also seeking expressions and registrations of interest for Ham Radio Operator Volunteers as there are still a few vacancies to assist with a up and coming event of the Shannon's Rally of the Heartland around Burra and Surrounds. 26-28th of April 2024
What a great way to spend a social weekend with fellow amateur radio operators and to put your skills and equipment to good use.
You can register for this event by registering online via the internet for the Shannon's Rally of the Heartland and register as a WICEN Volunteer, you can find the webpage by just typing the title into Google.
You can also register by contacting the President of WICEN S.A. via the contacts links of the WICEN S.A. Webpage, just Google us or check WICEN S.A. out on Facebook.

This has been David VK5LSB and on behalf of the WICEN S.A. Committee saying thank you for listening and looking forward to volunteering alongside of you all at the next event or chatting to you on the WICEN Net next Sunday 03rd March on the Adelaide Linked Repeater Network at 20:00 hrs local time, 73.
