The MWRS Education team continued to provide AOCP training and Assessment services to the Amateur Radio community. A number of Foundation revision and assessment Saturdays were conducted at Terrey Hills club house with a number of others completing their higher level assessments. Please spread the word that MWRS has this capability. If there is a friend or a relative that has shown an interest in Amateur Radio, let them know about the ultra-convenient one day format of the MWRS Foundation revision and assessment day. The MWRS Education team also offers a training course for Regs followed by the regulations assessment. This course and assessment takes approximately 4 hours. Of course we conduct upgrade assessments for those wishing to do one or more Amateur radio assessments. The Education team conducted a total of 66 assessments over a number of different venues during the last twelve months.
A special thank you goes out to our clubhouse custodian for allowing us to use the Terrey Hills clubhouse for the Education and assessment days.
My first JOTA
I attended my first JOTA event at MWRS club last year. I have got to say, I found it a hoot, assisting in getting the scouts and guides around all the different activities. I would recommend it to all and suggest even if you are around for a couple of hours between your other weekend commitments consider assisting I think you will enjoy it. I’ll be there again this year and my partner Katrina VK2FKAP with her pod coffee maker, serving coffee to the help. If you have an hour or more free, come on over and join in the JOTA activities.
