Coral Coast Net 7.093MHz.

October 4, 2020 | by jmorris |

Coral Coast Net has been around for 50+ Years and its not slowing down. It first went to air with the idea of having an east coast net started by Les Bell VK4LZ (SK) on 28th September 1967 ( Every morning on 7.060MHz ) Click here> Now 7.093MHz . Starting around 6.00am EST with the Early Bird Net, for those who have work or other commitments, followed by 7.00am EST the main Morning Net, maybe early depending on the seasonal calendar/Daylite saving time. We had to move to new frequencies, in more recent times, due to digital spectrum and other issues, finally settling on 7.093MHz.

Today’s Operator’s are from Northern Queensland, with net co ordination (relay stations) from Brisbane and NSW (or southern help from VK3 and VK5). Todays Net controller is VK4HDZ ( AL )Alpha Lima)). AL took it on as a foundation call using 10 watts, and with the help of many other foundation calls, as well as others have been very successful in maintaining the 7 days a week popular Net.

In 2009 a Rouges list was compiled by VK4KET Doug. This list gave a face to a call sign known as the” Rogues Gallery“, with a more updated version to be posted on its completion in 2021.

Please be patient with us all as the current sunspot activity, with Al’s help we have seen recently, VK2-FIVE, AKA, QM- VK4-KET, KO,FIBK, and the list goes on, to name a few. Many of todays technology has been developed, as well as devoted time and effort to act as NET relays. Also it is advised that 2021 Rouges Gallery needs to be published with the request from VK4KET for photo’s please send to Dougs email address().

Here is a site which might explain our poor reception conditions.
