NZART Activity Day at Willowbank Park

The branch turned up for a picnic lunch and put ZL2WB on the air at the NZART Activity Day on 1 January 2024. Around 20+ turned up and the weather turned out great. We were able to support some of our other members who activated SOTA stations within the region. What a great way to kick off 2024 for the Wellington Amateur Radio Club. Don’t forget our antenna construction event (tape measure beams) on Sunday 14 January that Eben ZL2EF is leading, and our annual club BBQ at Mike ZL1AXG’s QTH on Tuesday 16 January from 5.30pm.

Summer Lunchtime BBQ with XYLs

On 17 January we gathered at Mike ZL1AXG’s QTH from 12 noon for a summer lunchtime BBQ. XYLs and family members were invited.

It turned out to be excellent weather. We were able to share stories of summer adventures (particularly the acquisition of new radio gear from a Christmas estate sale) and chat about the club’s future with the upcoming Hamcram.

Combined Branches BBQ – Saturday 29 January 2022

Rather than have our own Branch 50 NZART BBQ this year, the committee decided to join with Branch 74 (Wellington VHF Group) and Branch 69 (Kapiti Branch) at their Combined Branches BBQ.

The Combined BBQ  was held at QE2 Park, Paekakariki on Sat 29th Jan  from 1200pm onwards.    Mike ZL1AXG and Frank ZL2TTS attended the BBQ. There were 14 amateurs and XYLs in attendance.
