It’s the Ferry Contest Tomorrow!

I am looking forward to the Ferry Contest tomorrow. Only a few hours to go. I was thinking about packing my bags and what I should include. The weather looks like it could be hot at around 29 degrees and there is always a risk of a late shower or storm. With that in mind here is my list below.

God luck for those who are participating. I hope to hear you during the day.


What to Bring

  • Backpack
  • Rain jacket
  • Hat
  • Sun glasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle – can fill on some ferries and wharves
  • Snacks
  • Camera for those unique Ferry Contest Moments

 Further details at the Ferry Contest page.

I’ve finally tidied up the radio setup in the car, and I’m very happy with the results.  This now includes:

2 * Yaesu FTM-100D in a custom dashboard enclosure.

1 * FT-450D in a DIN mount alongside the stereo.  (main unit in the rear of the car)

1 * UHF Chook Band for tagging along with the 4WD club.  It;’s only taken me ~3 years to work out what I wanted :/
