Repeaters Update

As most of you are probably aware by now the 70cms Repeater EI7MLR on Mt. Leinster Co. Carlow has been off air since Monday night/Tuesday morning thus disabling the link between the other repeaters in the network.

The repeater is now back on air. Thank you for your patience. 

Information about repeaters is available at http://www.searg.com/repeaters.php

EI2WRC at Inistioge Vintage Rally

South Eastern Amateur Radio Group operated a portable station using the call-sign EI2WRC/P from the Inistioge Vintage Rally, Co. Kilkenny on Sunday 5th of August 2012.

The rally itself was very enjoyable, with Vintage Cars, Tractors, Motorbikes, Stationary Engines and Farm Implement Displays along with music, kids entertainment and a farmers market.

In keeping with the vintage theme, SEARG had some vintage radio equipment on display and operated some Morse Code QSOs for the benefit of the gathered spectators.

The station / stall had a great many inquiries from visitors throughout the day.
