ALARA is the Australian Ladies Amateur Radio Group.
The Associations mission is to encourage women’s interest and active participation in amateur radio.
have created a grant scheme to encourage more women and girls to get
their amateur radio
licence qualifications. This scheme covers approximately half the cost
of getting a licence and callsign. It is also available to enable
current Foundation Licence holders to upgrade their qualifications to
Standard or Advanced.
Every few years the President and the Executive may decide that there is a Club Member who has made an outstanding contribution to the Group.
This year Club President Peter, VK5BE, and the Executive decided that Andrew, VK5KET, was a very worthy candidate for this honour because of his many years of input to the very efficient running of a number of annual events.
Andrew has been the major force behind the running of the Legend of the Lakes Hill Climb for many years as well as the organiser of our involvement with the huge Generations in Jazz Event plus organising events for the kids for J.O.T.A. and J.O.T.I. just to name a few.
Peter is shown presenting a very surprised Andrew with his award Certificate and medallion.
