There are only 3 weeks before another exciting WIA Conference.

Join us in Sydney on the weekend of the 26th of May at the ParkRoyal, Darling Harbour

On Saturday afternoon, Anthony Monger, VK2KZ will be exploring the role of Amateurs in scientific cubesat missions. Dr Tony Monger has been an amateur since 2009 and has worked on a number of space projects including Intelsat spacecraft, Shuttle payload designs (including a retrievable platform). He was one of the design engineers on the Ariane III launch vehicle. Currently retired, he works as a volunteer for several cubesat missions and engages in a small amount of research related to orbital lifetimes with respect to solar activity.

The past year has been a tumultuous time for education and qualification processes within our hobby. Join Liz Billiau, VK2SXE for a dive into the past, present and future of education with the WIA. Elizabeth is a medical practitioner with 40 years experience and holds a Master of Education completed in 2016. She is a Clinical Senior Lecturer for the University of Wollongong and an examiner for the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine. Liz has 10 years of experience on not for profit boards and over 30 years of experience in Amateur Radio.

It would not be a WIA Conference without our friends at Icom helping out with a cool piece of kit as a prize. This year Icom have sponsored the event with a dinner prize in the form of an IC-7300.

The IC-7300 will be drawn following Saturday nights dinner. All delegates who attend the full day conference and also attend the dinner will receive one chance to enter the draw. Additional tickets can be purchased on the day for $20 each, or $50 for 3.
