This months meeting is Simon ZL2UIV talking on his trips to the Philippines. Simon has many years experience in the installation, commissioning and trouble shooting of microwave radio links, and has really "been there, done that" in the best and worst countries in the world.
Simon will be covering his work and other activities in the Philippines and it should be an entertaining and informative evening!
In addition to Simon's talk we will also be voting on the two remits at this months meeting.

John has recently joined his MotoTurbo repeater as a node on the worldwide MotoTrbo network. This enables easy communications to nodes around the world using pre-set talk groups. MotoTrbo and P.25 continue the amateur tradition of converting commercial gear to amateur use in a way that takes it beyond the original use. There is also gear from amateur suppliers and plenty of used gear on Ebay and TradeMe. This is quite an exceptional direction for digital comms and an exciting direction for the amateur world.
