Recent website outage.
As many of you will know, this website was out of service for a few days. This was due to the fact that we have just transfered our web and domain host to a new provider located here in Australia who's pricing is much more competative than our previous US host. The domain transfer took a little longer than we expected and is the reason for the outage. The transfer was completed this morning and we now have full control over our domain once again. If you are looking for a very competative web hosting deal here in Australia, please don't hesitate to check out our new provider at the link below.

No Call back. 04 March 2018
Due to the fact that channel 3 is currently out of service for maintenance there will be no callback this evening.
As many of you may already know, the repeater has failed in the early hours of 27th of Feb. Tech Ray has attended the site and has removed the repeater for some well needed maintenance and repair work. Estimated time for re installation and commissioning of the repeater is approximately two weeks or so. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but the repairs and upgrades to the repeater will help to ensure that is provides us with problem free operation into the future. Channel 3 has not been taken out of service for maintenance for many years and has had very little down time in the past years thanks to Tech Ray keeping things running smoothly. We thank you all both members and the general public for your understanding on the current situation.
Please keep an eye on this page for further information.
