Keith Anderson, VK2FKJA says:
Would it be possible to place a notice on the club website advising of a Garage Sale being held this coming Saturday at the home address of Bill Sinclair VK2ZCV.
Also there is photographs of some equipment that is for sale by auction on the Facebook page.
Any help in promoting this would I am sure be appreciated by Bill’s family as Bill is still in rehabilitation at Wauchope Hospital; he is recovering slowly.
Many Thanks, Keith Anderson VK2FKJA
This was posted on ORARC Facebook page because we want the best result for Bill ZCV and too many cooks spoil the broth but any help and assistance will be appreciated by Bill’s family.
This is the link for you to access to gather any material you would like to post on any editorial on the clubs home page or email the membership – Oxley Region Amateur Radio Club Facebook Page/Photos/Albums/2 August 2016
Regards … Keith
Ashley Anderson You’re welcome to distribute the photos and information wherever you see fit. The purpose is to let as many people know as possible so that everybody gets to the chance to pick up some equipment for a good price while helping Bill get the best offer for his equipment.
This method has worked very successfully in the past.
We used this method at the Tamworth club and opened it to everybody to make an offer. We had no time frame on the bidding and the final offer would be considered when there was no more offers on the item.
Port Mac is obviously not a destination people can visit just for a garage sale, so for those who cannot attend they can make an offer via the photos on this page.
Please direct any queries regarding the above information to either firstname.lastname@example.org or enquire via the Facebook group.

Hello All, as our newsfeed is a little devoid of content, I though I’d take the opportunity to do a little gratuitous self-interest post!
For sale is my Trusty YAESU FT-897D Shack-in-a-box 160m to 70cm All-Mode Transceiver. Selling as I’ve just upgraded to the FT-991.
Unit build date is September 2013 and all its time here in the shack has been spent running my 70cm DStar Hotspot at 2W output, so it’s done very little work. Includes all original packaging & manuals, cables and standard mic, external analogue meter with Bluetooth CAT interface and USB CAT cable.
Specs and Info here.
$850 Or Nearest Offer. Located in Port Macquarie.
Please leave a comment or contact me via the usual methods if interested.
