Lara UHF & Microwave
Experimenters' Group
(L.U.M.E.G.)
                                                                                                           
The  Lara UHF & Microwave Experimenters' group is a very informal gathering of
amateur operators who have a common interest in building and experimenting with
radio "stuff" on the VHF - SHF * Above amateur radio bands and whom also happen
to reside in Lara.
At present it's members  are:

          VK3NX Charlie, VK3PY Chas  and  VK3QM David.

The "members" of L.U.M.E.G. also belong to the G.A.R.C. (Geelong Amateur Radio
Club)

On most evenings there  is a "rag chew"  on 144.300 MHz USB  where all things
radio are discussed with a huge emphasis on "home-brewing" (not the alcohol
type!).........................
 Anyone interested in radio communication on the
"higher bands "is welcome to join us.

To help point your beam, Lara is located in QF21 some 60km SW of Melbourne.  

Portable Operations.

Whilst the members enjoy operating from home,  a favourite past-time is portable
operation especially for the higher bands. This seems to culminate in the Spring and
Summer VHF-UHF field day contests as well as the John Moyle field day contest.

Usually the group operates under the call sign
VK3UHF.
