A pirate is known to be operating in the Waikato / Auck area the normal idiot noises and language being used please report to trustees in the Auck area if you have any info . We have had some reports of Un Authorised extensions from other bands causing issues to the system . All connections to the system must be approved , meet links specs and hold a current licence with the RSM .
Recently we have been asked about Internet Access to the National System. Due to key up delays , audio quality , security and the cost of running a dedicated fibre connection / digital microwave link to a suitable injection point , this is not possible at the present time .
