VK6WIA Automatic News Network


The VK6 WIA news is transmitted on many frequencies and can be divided into two categories...
  • Automatic linking system controlled by the Broadcast Officer
  • Manual relays by individual amateurs who re-broadcast the news

The block diagram below is of the automatic news linking that is controlled by the Broadcast Officer.

The Broadcast Officer initiates the news on 146.100 MHz, which is transmitted from his location to the 2 metre repeater VK6RAP 2m at Roleystone. From this site it is then linked and relayed as shown below.
