The August presentation will highlight our RF linkage with the icy Antarctic continent to the South.

It will feature Antarctic Communications from HF to Satellite to Maritime and everything else. Some history, some theory, some reminiscing and some fun.

This presentation will be by a number of REAST members headed up by Kim VK7KB and include Alan VK7KAJ and Roger VK7ER.

Unfortunately this event will not be live streamed or recorded due to potential copyright issues.
It's time to put this year's RD contest in your calendar! As the Wireless Institute of Australia explains:

"This contest commemorates the Amateurs who died during World War II and is designed to encourage friendly participation and help improve the operating skills of participants. It is held on the weekend closest to the 15th August, the date on which hostilities ceased in the southwest Pacific area."

Each state and territory receives a weighted score based on their participation. In 2016 VK7 was the winner with VK6 coming in a close second. You can help out your state a lot just by participating and submitting a log, even if you can't spend 24 hours at the radio!

If you're keen there are a lot of categories to compete in. Our own Steve VK7OO took third place out of 141 entries in Single Operator Phone last year. Remember that you get triple points between 1am and 6am.

Please read the rules on the WIA website carefully: http://www.wia.org.au/members/contests/rdcontest/
Listen out for the pre-contest broadcast on VK7RAD.
