BULLETINS:

The CTARC transmits a news bulletin every Sunday morning, starting at 08h30 on the following frequencies:

VHF:
Via the 145.750 MHz repeater.

Note: Since the storm damage of June 2017, which damaged the Tygerberg repeater antenna, this bulletin is temporarily broadcast via the 145.600 Hanskop repeater near Sir Lowry's Pass, with links to the 145.625 Mhz and 145.750 MHz repeaters

HF:
When relay stations are available, relays of the VHF bulletins are simultaneously broadcast on the following HF frequencies (for the benefit of listeners without VHF equipment or beyond the range of the repeater/s):
3.700 MHz in the 80 metre band, and
7.086 MHz.in the 40 metre band

The first bulletin is a relay of the SARL HQ Bulletin in English. It starts at 08h30. The second bulletin is the CTARC's Club Bulletin which follows immediately after the first, usually at around 08h45.

Towards the end of the bulletin, a "Swop-Shop" call-in is held for those wishing to offer ham radio-related items for swop or sale. No prices are mentioned on air.

At the end of the bulletin, a general call-in is held for those radio amateurs who have not been already logged before or during the bulletin.

The bulletins are prepared and read by various committee members on a schedule that is subject to change.

To contact the next bulletin reader to make an announcement (other than a Swop or call-in), please e-mail the club secretary at info@ctarc.org.za before the Thursday preceding the bulletin.

Note:

The CTARC Weekly Net is held every Monday evening, starting at 20h00, on the 145.750 MHz repeater. It is conducted by Noel / ZS1FW, ably assisted by Mike / ZS1FP.

This informal VHF net is an opportunity for local radio hams to discuss matters of mutual interest and other interesting topics, sometimes (but not necessarily) of a technical nature.

All radio hams are welcome to participate in the CTARC weekly net.
