Opinion

Letter To The Editor: Cindy McLeish, MLA

Since Daniel Andrews began his war on our volunteer firefighters, the CFA has lost 3534 operational volunteers, many who served on Black Saturday and have kept Victorians safe every fire season for decades.

Thanks to the Australian Army’s 108 Signal Squadron, Watsonia.

The Australian Army’s 108 Signal Squadron (108 Sig Sqn) provides radio communications encompassing Very High Frequency (VHF) and High Frequency (HF) networks that allows for short-range and long-range voice and data communications to Australia’s soldiers. The 108 Sig Sqn taught Kinglake Ranges News communications in the 1990s.

CORRECTION

ERRATA: In the article “Government admits faulty gas heaters caused death” Kinglake Ranges News (10/9) incorrectly reported the fire was probably caused by a Rinnai (brand) heater. This is incorrect.

A Vulcan/Pyrox (brand) heritage open flue gas heater was found by Coroner Hawkins on August 22, 2018 to have caused the death of a 62-year-old Greensborough woman.

Kinglake Ranges News sincerely apologies for the error.

CB radios legal to use whilst driving

It never has been in Victoria (and most of Australia) illegal to use a two way radio, including Citizen’s Band (CB), amateur radio and other two-way radio systems whilst driving – in motion – despite media reporting otherwise for over 30 years.
