ZL2WB VHF Field Day Activity

Six members of the club activated ZL2WB in the NZART Field Day contest. The weather wasn’t the best, but we made some contacts on all three bands we had equipment for: 6m, 2m and 70cm. As anticipated, there were not many active stations again this year.

Most contacts were on 2m SSB. The most distant stations worked were in Tauranga, Mt Taranaki and Marton. There were no South Island stations worked this year.

Vintage Radio Special Event

A special activity was held on Vintage Radio on Sunday 26 November from 1300 hrs to 1500hrs at the QTH of George ZL2AG (14 Vasanta Ave, Ngaio).

George showed off his fascinating collection of valves, vintage radios, spy equipment, and undersea cable samples all beautifully presented with a museum style experience, and gave a brief talk on his interest in vintage radio.

Registration was limited to 15 members, with 13 attendees.
