The Club’s Thursday evening net this week was facilitated by Brad VK2NMZ, the evenings topic was “The most interesting place and the most interesting advertisement you have seen relating to Amateur Radio” There were some great references to movies, TV shows and the talk of operating portable in a park and having members of the public approach you with curiosity being the best advertising you could have.
Today marks day 192 that Bob VK2AOR has facilitated the Morning tea net on the VK2RAG 2 Meter repeater.
