Well the WIA conference at Handorf is now over for another year, with many interstate visitors making their way home.  A great turnout by NERC members who attended many of the events on offer throughout the weekend.  This included the AGM, visits to the Birdwood Car Museum and many other activities that makes radio magic.  Many facets of our hobby was on show Sunday afternoon at the Handorf Oval including EME, STEM conducted by by Joe (VK3YSP) and Julie (VK3FOWL), a great ‘show and tell’ by Steve (VK5SFA) on magnetic loops and many other great presentations and displays.  The highlight of the afternoon was the HORUS balloon launch which went off after a few last minute checks by the AREG boys, with contacts being made through the parrot repeater payload to the VI5WIA special event callsign.  A great event and congratulations to the organising committee for making this a big success.

Even one of our own members became the official photographer capturing all the action at the oval on Sunday!  73s.  Nig.
