Ferry Contest–One more sleep…..

The WARS annual Ferry Contest is on tomorrow. This has meant a period of preparation which has included charging batteries, checking radios, updating programming, printing log sheets, packing backpacks, arranging water and snacks and may other similar tasks. For those new to the event you can inspect some useful hints regarding travel and what to bring in our On the Day section on our website (http://vk2bv.org/sydney-amateur-radio-ferry-contest-2019/ferry-contest-on-the-day/).

As of today (18:30) the following checks have been made:

  • There are no alerts on the public transport system for the Ferries. Service should be as usual.
  • The weather forecast predicts “18-24 degrees with a 40% chance of rain of 0-1 mm. Partly cloudy. Medium chance of showers, most likely in the morning and early afternoon. Winds southerly 20 to 30 km/h in the east, tending south to south westerly 15 to 25 km/h in the west”. It would be wise to pack a rain jacket as well as a means of battling excess ultra violet radiation.

Please check in to the WARS Club Station on the Paddington 2m repeater prior to the commencement of the contest for a chance to say hello and enter the draw for one of our fabulous prizes.

I look forward to seeing or hearing from you tomorrow.
