Radio Configuration Files now available

Finally…. setup and data files for some Yaesu and Icom radios is now available.
These files are only available to logged in current members.
The supplied files contain information updated from the WIA each month, the process is 95% automated. So the source config files will usually appear 1-2 days after the WIA update.
The specific model setup files (Clone and icf files) will generally be available about a week later.

Current Callsigns showing as available in ACMA/WIA

The new ACMA system is in place and it seems that there are some issues with the initial deployment. Several current callsigns have started showing up as available.  I have included 2 links here, the first is to the search facility of acma.

This second link is to the WIA available callsign lookup. Given that this is automatically built from ACMA data, the place for fixing is probably the ACMA.
