This coming weekend we are helping the Girl Guides by operating the Shack as VK5BAR for the JOTA weekend on Saturday 17th of October as per last couple of Sunday morning broadcasts. The attached list contains the frequencies to be used, both internationally and here in Australia.
We have been busy at the shack preparing for this event, repairs to antennas and the addition of a new 30m antenna as well, and cleaning up of the shack and surrounds thanks to several volunteers and regulars, this has been very much appreciated.
If you have some time to spare on Saturday, please keep and ear out for us, we will have quite a number of Guides coming through the shack to talk on the radios, we could probably use an extra operator or two to help out.
All COVID restrictions apply, so spacing needs to be observed and contacts lists will need to be kept as per the regulations, the GG leaders will be assisting in the chaperoning duties and running their own events in the main hall, with quite a few items such as simple Morse sessions and Semaphore exercises happening through the day.
Thanks to all who have helped !
Regards & 73
