VK5MAZ in the 2021 ALARA Contest

Over the weekend just gone, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th August 2021, the annual ALARA Contest was held. ALARA is the acronym for the Australian Ladies Amateur Radio Association.

Although we had a number of commitments over the weekend, Marija did manage to sneak in about 3 hours on air during the contest. This was Marija’s first ever contest.

Marija made a total of 124 QSOs on 40m and 80m SSB. Not bad at all considering the amount of time she spent on air. Our Sunday afternoon was spent with the family, including our little grandson Flynn.
