Pirates on this section ,  siren noises  random DTMF tones  button pushing and swearing . Please do NOT  talk to or acknowledge  their presence   it just makes it worse 

Klondyke :   

 suspect that the link transmitter at Klondyke on the Taranaki (Egmont) link is down in power based on a number of reports of poor reception of signals from Klondyke.  Plan on getting to site with a spare as soon as possible but it might be another 10 days or so.

Updated 20 Jan 2022      Please note during Covid restrictions  , repeater site visits may not be possible in msome circumstances . 

Please note :  info for each site or region is updated  when the local trustees provide us with info .  Unfortunately this often does not happen . Each area will be updated when info is received from Trustees or the Branch .

Please avoid the use of the National System for local chatter , move to a local repeater or simplex if possible . It holds the whole country on , not just your local repeater . 

National System usage guide.

Please make sure minimum of 3 second gaps between overs . At busy times 5 seconds is recommended.

Key up delay from the Far North to the Far South is several mS so the gaps are very important so others can access if required . Please limit conversation to a max of 20 mins  and if possible move to simplex or a local repeater .  A conversation on your local national system repeater activates the whole system nation wide .
