  President's Notes
Chris VK3QB Well here we are at the end of another year. It has been a busy time with the Antennapalooza, the visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Cranbourne and Prac nights providing opportunities for GGREC members to get involved with our Club. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to Reg VK3UK and Jenny for a speedy recovery and hope to see them up and about as soon as possible.

  Visit to the Gardens
On Melbourne Cup day, Bryan VK3FOAB and I visited the Royal Botanic Gardens in Cranbourne and enjoyed a picnic lunch. I have seen short snippets of the Gardens on television gardening shows but I was still very impressed with the huge scale of the native gardens, waterfalls, lakes and water ways. All this was in the Australian native garden section of the gardens.

  Who is making that terrible DIN?
Undoubtedly there are those amongst us who cannot sleep atnight because they wonder what the numbers on the bottom ofAutomotive Relays actually mean. You have seen them. The relay coils are labelled 85 and 86.Contacts are labelled 30, 87 and 87a. Who got to say Whatthe numbers were? Why are we still stuck with them? Is it really the relay numbers that prevent you from sleeping?
