Official Club Radio Communications Channel 16


Spotted another club member in traffic and want to talk on the radio but don't know what channel to use?

The club agreed at a recent meeting to adopt the PRS Ch16 as the 'default'  channel for our vehicles. Checks with the Radio Spectrum management got their agreement that with proper use of the radios they have no issue with our use of Ch16.

It has been suggested that all 4x4 clubs in NZ adopt this channel as a calling channel. (Australian clubs use PRS Ch10 if you are over there)

Trip Leader Guidelines 2007



The purpose of this document is to assist members of the Auckland Four Wheel Drive Club, Inc (“the Club”) to become confident Trip Leaders.
To ensure the aims and objectives of the Club are upheld in accordance with the Club constitution and rules.

It is not intended for commercial training.

Skills & Attributes of a Trip Leader

The Committee determines the minimum skills and attributes required of a club member to be considered as a suitable and responsible Trip Leader. A competent four wheel driver does not necessarily make a good Trip Leader. Trip Leaders should always review club rules / regulations / by-laws.

The Club intends to run training sessions, where experienced Trip Leaders will advise new potential Trip Leaders how to run trips. It would also be advisable that a potential Trip Leader has attended a minimum number of club trips.
