Hi Mark,
Interesting.
VK2RNG is not listed in the ACMA database.

I can hear it at 5/3 on 147.3
Input 147.9 no CTCSS required

Hillary, looks like VK2RNG 147.300 has either closed down or moved...
In saying that a new repeater VK2RUW has surfaced in the Illawarra region on 146.975Mhz.
Appears (at times) to be linked with VK2RUW on 146.675Mhz & VK2RMP 146.850 at Maddens Plains.
No doubt more to come...

Hi Mark,
They are actually the same repeater.
I will tell you the story when I next see you :-)

Anyway, I have added this new repeater to the VKSpotter repeater list.

Anyone can now add/edit repeaters and beacons on VKSpotter.
https://vkspotter.com/?action=repeaters
https://vkspotter.com/?action=beacons

I just have to find a way to encourage all repeater/beacon owners to maintain their own details.

Almost impossible I think :-)
