  President's Notes
Chris VK3QB I can't wait for the final report about our Hamfest. With numbers down a little on last year, we seem to have come out with a healthy surplus again. Thank you again to all our members that turned up to help and also congratulations to the door prize winners. We are very lucky to have Altronics and PK look Antennas as sponsors and assistance from Rockby Electronics. I acknowledge that holding a Hamfest is getting harder and harder for some of us but I hope we can energise ourselves for this once a year event.

JOTA/JOTI is coming up next on the Club calendar. Let's hope that the propagation is kind to us this year as we have been promised a greater participation rate from the Guides and Guides from the surrounding areas.

  I get high ...
About 5 years ago I found myself up an 8 metre ladder to trim a dodgy branch on an ancient Cypress tree. I had carefully roped this fibreglass ladder to the branch near the cut off point. After cutting about halfway through, the tree decide to do a running horizontal split all the way to the trunk, immensely tightening the rope which mostly severed one side of thel adder. It got complicated very quickly, as the ladder pivoted around the remaining side and the 300mm thick branch slowly surrendered its weight to gravity around me.

  VK UHF band temporarily changed
