Starring Laurel & Hardy aka
Nigel VK5NIG Stuart VK5STU
With Nigel trying to be serious, and Stuart, doing a good job of not being serious, his jokes were good. What is CW?
Amongst all the humor and fun, members had a good night, learning about contesting.
A variety of hand held radios, and portables, were brought along by members, who eventually joined in the fun, of NERCs contesting night.
Nigel gave a talk on how to look at contesting, which is recognized as a sport in Amateur radio, he also showed a video from Germany which proved to be an eye opener of equipment and coffee machines!
Every one enjoyed the night, with members logging in from all over the world including the south pole. and a place tidli… don’t know how to spell
