A Wyong field day 2009 report

Today was the Wyong field day. What a fine day it was for it, not too hot thankfully.

The crowd was a little down on past years but the vendors were very happy with the sales.

I bought a few panel meters.

I bought a Philips 1.3Ghz frequency counter for $50 that seems to work fine and a calibrated Philips RF probe for $20.

The commercial vendors seemed to be doing a great trade but happily I wasn't in the market for a black box this year.

It was my pleasure to run into Peter who is a part of the excellent AmateurLogic TV video podcast. I thanked him for his excellent reports.

Under cover it was very pleasant with a cooling breeze flowing through.

Soon it was time to hop upstairs for a refreshing cup of tea.

And some crackers and cheese cubes.

The NSW Home Brew group had a great display and answered lots of questions.

Even 13 year old girls are going for the foundation licenses which is a good thing.

Wyong wouldn't be Wyong without the embroidery display which was excellent again this year.

I bought a nice embroidered bag for $5.
