It's now two years since I moved to country Victoria. One of the first things I did was find the local amateur radio club. For me it's the Macedon Ranges Amateur Radio Club.
During this relatively short time I feel like I've made some significant new friends and I have no feeling of isolation which I imagine might affect people who've made a move like this.
We had our annual Xmas meeting this week with an amusing quiz and some finger food. I wrangled the group to stand up for a photo.
There's some very interesting people in the group and I very much enjoy the weekly club nets, coffee mornings, and meetings. I'm looking forward to the picnic in January.
My thanks to those that created the club and do the work to make it all run so smoothly.
If you are feeling a bit isolated, I heartily recommend becoming a part of your local amateur radio club.
