Wed 21-Jun-2017 – Lecture: Fox Hunting
There’s more to this subject than we’d imagined with national and world competitions requiring enormous fitness and skill at the highest level … and a fox! Clifford Heath will tell us all about it.
Message from Clifford:
Come up and hear me talk about Direction Finding at MWRS this Wed.
I’m focussing on pedestrian events (rather than vehicle-based) but will answer questions about all formats of DF events, including the IARU championship series.
I’d like to get interested people involved in building some club DF gear so we can run events, including ones accessible to members of the public. It’s a great way to get out in the bush, get fit, learn about radio propagation,and get people into amateur radio.
I hope you’re not all planning on staying home to watch the State of Origin on Wednesday!
