All boats are required to complete a test of their chosen communication method for the Skeds during the race. 

HF Radio users

For those using HF Radios, you are required to carry out a test with Charleville Radio. To arrange your check, please call ahead on 02 6151 6688. Once the test starts you will be required to register a 3x3 both ways on both 4483kHz and 6516kHz.

You do not need to let us know when you have completed the test; Charleville Radio will supply us test results periodically.

Sat Phone users

If your using a Sat Phone for your Sked you will need to perform a Sat Phone test. You will need to send a SMS message to +61 413 545 246 starting your boat name between the hours of 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday only. You will then receive a reply; if you do not receive a reply, please let us know as this will mean there is an issue with your phone.
