WICEN NSW is a communications support squad of the NSW Volunteer Rescue Association.

The Glowworm Tunnel Marathon will be held in and around Newnes in the Blue Mountains on the weekend of 18th-20th June. If you are interested in participating please contact

Dementia Australia will hold a Memory Walk in Penrith on 9th May and another at Leichhardt Oval, Lilyfield, on 23rd May. Volunteers are still needed for both these events, which are an ideal training ground in emergency communications for WICEN members.

The topic for today’s training at Dural is about NVIS propagation.

WICEN runs a weekly net each Sunday evening at 1800 hrs. The net is run on either the Chatswood 2 m repeater or the Kurrajong 70 cm repeater.

Please note the Berowra 70 cm. repeater is temporarily off air.
