Once again we were extremely lucky.
The weather turned out perfectly.
The site was excellent. (Thank you John, VK5DJ)
The company was, as usual, fabulous.
A great time was had by all.
Many thanks to Chris, VK5MC, and the Millicent Rotary Club for providing an extra BBQ and the transporting of it to and from.
A number of our VK3 Members made the effort and travelled quite a distance to join us – namely Ian, VK3DNQ and wife Helen, (Coddrington. Vic), John, VK3FJSN, (Hamilton side of Casterton, Vic.) John, VK3FJET, (Portland).
It was also great to see Millicent Member Gilbert, VK5FGIL, as we rarely catch up with him.
Tom, VK5EE, set up his portable station and a few contacts were made on 40 metres much to the interest of all present.
John, VK3FJET, had a problem with his two metre rig in the car. It appeared to be stone deaf. A number of Club Members had a crack at finding the problem until Tom, VK5EE, suddenly realised that it was the power supply for John’s reversing camera that was obliterating all signals. He unplugged it from the cigarette lighter and the problem disappeared. Well done Tom,
Here are a few pictures from the very enjoyable day.
I have to apologise, as I was supposed to have taken a Group photo but, you guessed it, I forgot. (However, no one reminded me either.)
