WICEN (NSW) and WICEN (ACT) maintain a number of fixed and portable repeaters in NSW and the ACT. As with all repeaters in the amateur service, they are available for use by other amateurs. However, WICEN does request that during WICEN operations, other traffic is minimised so as not to impact on the safety of the WICEN operation.



WICEN and the St. George Amateur Radio Society are jointly conducting a test of a temporary 70cm FM repeater at Mt. Bindo, on the Great Dividing Range, west of the Blue Mountains. This is to determine UHF coverage from the location.
The repeater VK2RAH is on 439.875 MHz, with the standard negative 5.0 MHz offset. No CTCSS tone is required or sent.
Amateurs with UHF FM radios in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Tablelands, and further afield are encouraged to try out the repeater, and to send reports to:
