The Illawarra Amateur Radio Society and the Mid South Coast Amateur Clubs will joining together to hold a field day on the 28th of September, 2019.
The main activity will be the activation of National Parks in the WWFF (World Wide Flora and Fauna in Amateur Radio) program.
To download the flyer containing this information, please click here (PDF).
The main modes of activation will be using 2 metres and 70cm rather than the usual HF frequencies. This will be possible because of the number of National Parks in close proximity in our area. These frequencies will also provide the opportunity for those who cannot get out to the field day to make contact with those operating portable in the National Parks. There will be portable stations operating in at least three National Parks.
