Talk at Elizabeth ARC

Last night (Wednesday 3rd December, 2014) I headed up the Elizabeth Amateur Radio Club to deliver a presentation on the Summits on the Air (SOTA) program.  The talk was attended by about 15 members of the club who showed a keen interest in the SOTA program. vk5lz2 The presentation including all aspects of SOTA, including its history, how summits qualify for SOTA, some operating tips, and favoured equipment used.  I also brought along my Yaesu FT-817, linked dipole, some SOTA awards, and my Shack Sloth trophy.

There were a few park activators present, who hopefully now will give SOTA a crack here in VK5.  One fella is travelling to Europe soon, and showed a keen interest in activating some summits whilst there on holidays.

Thanks to Allen VK5MAK for asking me to talk to the group.
