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.

MacOs Software for ThumbDV
If you have the ThumbDV or the DV3000 from NW Digital there is a new piece of Mac software to drive them natively. The software is called Buster.
The App is on the Mac App store and is free. With a little bit of tweaking I even added VK2RBV to the list and made a direct connection to it.

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.
More news as it comes to hand.
