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
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 .
