WICEN's Monday night HF net is being reduced to once a month. This will be the second Monday of each month, so the next HF net will be at 8 p.m. on Monday the 13th of May.

The group has started a 2m digital net via the Chatswood repeater at 7:30 p.m. on the 4th Wednesday of each month. The first of these was on Wednesday the 24th of April. Initially they will be using the mode MT63-2k-long. In the future it may be possible to link Chatswood with other repeaters to allow others to join the net.

If you picked up a membership form at last Sunday's Field Day this is
your reminder to fill it out and mail it back. If it now smells of
tamarind, because you spilled Aussie BBQ sauce on it, replacements are
available on the WICEN website.
