It's still there, but not as active as their EU or NA 
counterparts.  Membership is also a lot more vague and 
nebulous.  However, they do run a monthly net on Echolink on the 
second Sunday of the month on the *AMSAT* conference.  I think the 
time is either 0400z or 0500z.  I'd have to dig up a copy of AR for 
the net details.  I tend to keep forgetting the net, and Sunday 
afternoons is usually inconvenient for me in any case.  My best 
windows are in the morning.  Years ago, I used to participate in 
their HF net from time to time, which still runs as the "unofficial" 
HF net (0900z I think) on the same Sunday as the Echolink net.
