Wyong field day 2013 - quiet but entertaining

It was a pleasure as always to make the drive from Sydney to Wyong for the annual ham radio field day. As always, the NSW home brew group had a great display of home built equipment.

Modern equipment was on show.

I caught up with old friends, that's John and John, the one on the left is the station announcement voice on the ARNSW WIA Sunday broadcasts.

Software defined radio continues to be actively used and developed.

It was great to catch up with everyone.

Unfortunately, the dire weather predictions the day before frightened off the majority of car boot sales and attendees. My thanks to the organisers and the tea and cubes of cheese were fantastic as always.
