A quiet but friendly Wyong field day

Today I attended the Wyong Field Day. Once again I helped David Rowe on the FreeDV table and in between table duty had a look around.

This year they'd arranged things so that it was pretty much all under cover. Unlike some previous years when it was oppressively hot, it was cool and a tiny bit wet. There was lots of surplus gear not to buy.


I attended an interesting talk on MMDVM (multi mode digital voice modem).


Attendance felt a little down on some past years. Perhaps the threat of showers put some people off.


The ARNSW Home Brew Group had a terrific display, indoors this time.



Peter, VK2EMU, is illustrating below how he can build two amplifiers with the same output power but in vastly different form factors.


Great to see everyone and thanks to the organisers at the Central Coast Amateur Radio Club for a fantastic effort once again.
