In time for the VHF DX season, the 6m, 2m, and 70cm beacons have been serviced and put back into operation at Mount Lofty near Adelaide, Australia.
As the VK5 Mount Lofty 6m beacon has been off air for some time, in restoring the operation of the beacon it has also had a frequency change in accordance with the WIA band plans. Part of the rebuild included referencing the 6m and 70cm beacon frequencies to the GPS.
The VK5VF beacon frequencies are:-
- New 6m frequency is now 50.320 MHz
- 2m frequency is 144.450 MHz and
- 70cm frequency is 432.450 MHz
