Stuff & Things


Phil Garside ZL2RO
"Let's put a NZ based reflector up that's not in the cloud." - XLX626 started out in May 2017, thanks to Phil driving it. Phil doesn't remember how anything works. He probably frustrats Tony a bit. Phil is our "Marketing Guy".

Tony Hughes ZL2EZ
Tony makes & breaks everything. He probably frustrates Phil a bit. All good though. Net result is usually some sort of forward momentum. Tony is our "Resident Technical Guru".

John Wysocki ZL2TWS
John poured a lot of time, energy, effort, and wisdom into getting 626 supported - with D-Star technical knowledge for newbie Tony, and also getting a bunch of repeaters/hotspots connected to 626 by encouraging hotspot owners and helping configure peoples gear to connect to us. Thanks John.

Everyone Who Connects To XLX626
Whether you put a repeater up connected to 626 semi-permanently, or a high powered hotspot, or
connect with a low power board or dongle, we really appreciate your patronage of 626. It's all
for you guys, and we are glad to see it being utilised.
