Do you use the VHF Repeater Channels 60, 62, 64 or 66.
If so, you should join the Otago Maritime VHF Association which provides this service.
Without membership funding and donations the repeaters would have to close down, seriously reducing safety and convenience in our area.
The repeaters are Ch 60 at Corstorphine, Dunedin, Ch 62 on Hautai Hill (near Taiaroa Heads), Ch 64 at Hina Hina in South Otago and CH 66 at Cape Wanbrow, Oamaru. These repeaters provide marine VHF coverage from Timaru down to Invercargill.
The annual subscription rates are:
Recreational members $38.00
Commercial members $58.00
Membership applications can be obtained from the association at P O Box 2120, South Dunedin, 9044 or by email from firstname.lastname@example.org
