Hi all

This is a re-send of my previous email to remind you we hope to be on-air 
and on-line from about 1200 UTC this coming Thursday, if not then, 
as soon as possible after. We're scheduled to commence sometime Friday.

There are some 850 Venturers and 300+ Leaders involved, so we expect to 
be busy.

I've sent this mail to several lists, so I apologise if you receive 
multiple copies.

Yours in Scouting

expeditions around the South West of Western Australia.

The W.A. Scout Communications Team is operating an Internet Cafe and
Amateur Radio Shack. These will be in operation from Friday 9th to
Wednesday 14th January 2009.

The Internet Cafe will enable the Venturers to catch up with email,
blogs etc. chat online, and chill out.

The Amateur Radio Shack will be on-air from Friday 9th January until
Wednesday 14th January 2009.

We will be using the callsign VK6SAA
*Our timezone is Western Australian Summer Time, UTC+9*

We will be working HF bands, on or near the Scout Calling Frequencies

We will have Echolink onsite, VK6SH.

We will also have equipment for listening and talking to satellites,
hoping to get a 25 year certificate from ARISS, and maybe also a few
QSOs via repeaters on board satellites.

If you wish to pre-arrange a sked. please email vk6scouts(AT)westnet.com.au
anytime before or during the event, or contact us during the event on
Echolink.

I wish you all the very best for the coming Festive Season, and look
