On Thursday 23rd October, 2014 I ventured down to the Seaford Meadows clubrooms of the South Coast Amateur Radio Club (SCARC) and delivered a presentation on the VK5 Parks National and Conservation Parks Award, the World Wide Flora Fauna (WWFF) program, and equipment used for portable operation.
A very keen group of about 20 amateurs attended.
I spoke about the basics of the VK5 Parks award and WWFF program. And I also spoke briefly about various transceivers that can be used for portable operation, portable power sources, and antennas for portable use. I brought along some of my portable gear including the Yaesu FT-817nd, my 44 amp hour power pack, various antennas, bothy bag, etc.
Thanks to Peter VK5PET for asking me to come down to SCARC.
