March 2017 - John Moyle Memorial Field Day.
AHARS’ intended operation on this weekend at its usual location at “Womberoo” in the Mallee, was cancelled (due to forecast high temperatures, and insufficient numbers of volunteers). Not willing to let the opportunity to be involved slip by, I quickly organised AHARS to operate from The Shack.
We had a pretty good turnout, at short notice; thanks to those who operated (Shirley, VK5YL), Roy, (VK5NRG), Patrick (VK5MPG), Kevin (VK5AKZ), and myself . We were supported by President Phil (VK5SRP) , Gerard (VK5ZQV), Graham (VK5GH), Phil (VK5GM), and Jim (VK5TR). It was a pleasant and mostly successful operation.
Where the event didn’t quite work out was in the Rules of the Contest. In my hurry to preserve the operation, I overlooked one important rule - all club stations must operate as portable. For that reason, our entry in the contest was invalid, although the log I submitted was used as a Check Log. My apologies for being mortal on this occasion!
Discussion re operating portable in 2018 have already been initiated. If Womberoo is unavailable, then we now have another venue.
