MDRC was founded in 1948 and has the club callsign of VK3APC. The clubrooms are located at Turner Road in Highett, Victoria. MDRC holds regular monthly meetings as well as weekly Coffee Group discussions. The Coffee Group meets every Tuesday morning from 9:30 to 11:00, and is known as the “Tuesday Morning Group”.
When the clubrooms are open, so is the VK3APC shack. Members and visitors are welcome to come down to the clubrooms and operate HF, VHF or UHF. Digital modes are also available on HF and UHF. All of the MDRC Repeaters under VK3RMC can be accessed from the Club Rooms. VK3RMC is operational on D-Star and Analogue repeater systems across multiple bands with IRLP enabled on 70cm.
