AREC:

The Hamilton Amateur Radio Club (Inc.) has an active AREC section. We have a relationship with CDEM in Hamilton and are involved providing Safety Communications for a number of events within the greater Waikato area.

The Hamilton Branch 12 section is a section of the nationwide AREC network reporting to the Northern Regional Manager.

SECTION MEMBER:

Hamilton Section currently has 12 members; 6 of whom have completed the training.

Any person wishing to join the section can make an application to the Section Leader.

Note: Under AREC Rules, applicants living in an area covered by another section will be referred to that section for membership.

The Club owns 3 short term special purpose repeaters – two on VHF and one on UHF. We also own 2 complete portable H.F. stations (IC-718’s), tuners, power supplies including 2 generators and sealed lead acid batteries.

The club also owns 4 VX-150 and 2 FT-23R handhelds for use by amateurs on events and during emergencies.

Section meetings are held at the Clubrooms (88 Seddon Road, Hamilton) on the 5th Wednesday of the month. Briefings are generally always held prior to an event, and debriefings following the event.

These include major events such as The Kona Colville Connection – a mountain bike race in the Coromandel area, and the Hamilton Bridge to Bridge Water-ski Classic – a series of water-ski races on the Waikato River.

We also provide safety communications for the Vintage Car Club (Waikato Branch) events in the local area.
