Shannon Park JOTA Summary
A HF and VHF station was set up for JOTA at Shannon Park in Rockhampton.
Don VK4BY, John VK4KDN, and Mike VK4LMB
helped set up a permanent HF aerial on Saturday morning. John VK4KDN
and Don VK4BY supervised the JOTA radio activity that started at
4pm, and continued until after 7pm. Most activity was on 40 metres
with JOTA stations worked in Toowoomba, VK1, VK2, and Rotorua in
ZL. There was local activity on 2m with stations in Rockhampton
and Gladstone. The Girl Guides and Brownies all had a chance to
talk, and all had a good time. The group presented thank you certificates
to all of the amateur participants.
Don VK4BY transmitted the official JOTA broadcast
at the nominated hour. It was heard by the Seeone Park group."
