Installations.

The Great Lake Radio Club Incorporated operates two fixed radio installations.

One is a complex of several VHF and UHF amateur radio transmitters and receivers, serving as repeaters, and located on Cabbage Tree Mountain, 27 km to the north-west of Bulahdelah and 40 km to the west of Forster-Tuncurry, on the NSW Mid North Coast.

The other is a Citizen Band repeater, operating on UHF Channel 4 from a temporary location on the Forster water-tower, off Little Street, Forster, pending access being gained to its intended site on Mount Talawahl, north-west of Nabiac, NSW, and 17 km from Forster-Tuncurry.


The club also has a portable VHF amateur repeater which can be set up at short notice as a manned repeater for emergency or temporary operation to meet a brief requirement.

In the planning stage are a Slow Scan Television repeater and an Amateur Television repeater, both to be installed at Cabbage Tree Mountain.

The completion of these projects is dependent on funds becoming available to meet the capital and operating costs, and on the assistance of members to construct and install the equipment.

This type of project is the essence of amateur radio and the main distinguishing feature between it and CB operation.


Details of the two existing fixed installations are given on following pages and a series of maps is provided elsewhere giving details of the location of Forster-Tuncurry, and of these repeaters.
