CENTRAL QUEENSLAND AMATEUR RADIO ASSOCIATION

Submitted by Ray Dobinson V.President C.Q.A.R.A.

Our new CQARA DX site at the remote location of Weasel Park 20kms south of Rockhampton was the perfect backdrop for our use of the special call sign VK100WIQ. Even though local events like the Rockhampton and Yeppoon Show, Gladstone Fishing Competition and the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations filled our weekend calendar, 17 members and family participated in this once in a life time event. Over 100 contacts where made both locally and internationally using a variety of frequencies and modes. Many members braved the cold, wind, rain and wildlife to make this event a success. Another highlight of the event was the presentation of a certificate to Jack Chomley VK4JRC our association’s first life time member for his contribution to amateur radio within our association and the wider amateur radio community. VK4DV and VK4QI were unable to attend and teamed up to work more stations on the remaining day.

Members who worked the call from left to right are,
Vk4- NFP, Dell Grosskoff, MBG, NJB, JRC, HOT, NFZ and MTJ.

LOCKYER VALLEY AMATEUR RADIO CLUB

29/7/2012

A small gathering from the club included our Secretary Ken VK4QH, Treasurer Alan VK4SN, Peter VK4MN
and Michael VK4FAKE. Unfortunately due to others having the dreaded flu and sustained injuries they were
unable to join in on the fun.   Ken was happy to for us to use his station as it was built to cater for 4 positions.
 Alan took his pump up mast and 3 element tribander and set up for CW and Ken and the others set up 2 more
positions for voice.
