23CM BAND

BAND STATUS ANTENNA ANTENNA HEIGHT RIG
23CM - 1296 MHz DECOMISSIONED 2018 3.8m Mesh Dish 30dBi 40 ft Kuhne Transverter

Operational Status : DECOMMISSIONED 2018

Comments :  Due to the lack of stations and activity in Australia on the 23cm band, this part of the station is now decommissioned. 

                             This station could easily extend the current 23cm band Australian distance record as maintained by the Wireless Institute of Australia. But there are no stations in Western Australia that operate this band and thus                 no contects can be completed at this time. There are also no beacons in suitable locations.
