Documents and Links

The Club maintains a resource area to store documents.
You are welcome to use these public resources in your pursuit of the hobby.

We do ask that you acknowledge the source and cite any references which we have listed. Thank you.

Flowerpot Dual Band Antenna

This document contains instructions and images to help members build the Flower Pot Antenna.
It's a simple 2M VHF/70cm UHF dual bander built at minimal cost as it requires only a metre of conduit and 2 metres of coax!
This was a group project at a Workshop in 2015 and again in2022.

Flower Pot Dual Band Antenna

It's such a reliable antenna that it we repeated the workshop again for newer members of the club.

Child Protection

The club has a comprehensive Child Protection policy in place and the 'Child & Youth Risk Management Strategy' has been uploaded.


We encourage our members to be familiar with our Child Protection policy as it is something that we take seriously and their vigilance will help us reinforce protection of Children within our Club and the wider community

CW Practice Oscillator

When Morse Code was mandatory students built oscillators so they could hear how they were 'Sending' before going live on air.
Now Morse is just for fun and from time to time we get a group together for some Morse Code classes.
We built four Oscillators to use at the Club's JOTA event as the scouts love to play Morse!
Another project which never goes out of date.

CW Oscillator

Document was created by VK4ION & updated parts & pricelist were added in 2022.

LDR / LED Circuit

At a Workshop we created this LDR [Light Dependent Resistor] / LED circuit.
There were several matters that required correction, so the additional steps in this document may help anyone who had problems building this one at home.

LDR Circuit

Created by VK4ION to add steps to assist in the build.

Amplifier Project - From Schematic to Vero Board

This is a document prepared by Peter VK4PDG and contains instructions and images to help members build a simple bench amplifier.

Simple Bench Amplifier

Basic Electronics Course Part I

For the Beginner!
Step by step instructions to create some simple electronics projects using LED, Diode, Resistor, Piezo Buzzer & 9V Battery.

Basic Electronics Part I

Ron VK4BRG ran this workshop.
VK4ION transcibed the notes and created the document

Basic Electronics Part II

This document follows Part 1 and contains instructions to complete the next projects.
Introduces a simple circuit diagram and explains transitioning a schematic diagram onto a breadboard.
Also introduces Variable Resistor, Transistor & Capacitors.

Basic Electronics Part 2

The document was compiled from Workshop Notes during club workshop sessions.

Basic Electronics Part III

This document is the final in the Basic Electronics Course.
Completes a series of electronics exercises using a voltage regulator & crystal oscillator. Circuit diagrams and images of final breadboard circuits are included to assist with each Demo.

Basic Electronics Part 3

Note: To test these circuits additional equipment is required.
Read the documents before you begin so you understand how to test the finished circuit.

Capacitor Conversion Chart

This document, compiled by Ron VK4BRG gives a quick overview of frequently used Capacitors, their value and EIA Code.
