Just over 2 weeks before the start of the WIA Conference weekend.

Why not join us in Sydney on the weekend of the 26th of May at the ParkRoyal Motel in downtown Darling Harbour

To introduce a few more of the presenters on Saturday afternoon, we introduce John Buckley VK2LWB and Peter Twartz who will be presenting "RF in confined spaces - frequency management at large sporting events". John is a Waverley Amateur Radio Society member and amateur of close on 10 years standing with a significant experience in live audio and RF production issues. Peter is a longstanding production and supply chain professional in the Audio Visual market who specialises in large scale event RF management.

This presentation features a demonstration on the issues of site wide frequency management and co-ordination of RF issues at large sporting events in areas described already as High Density under ACMA guidelines.

We also introduce Jamie Campbell VK2YCJ who will be giving us a presentation on the Secrets of the KiwiSDR. This is a highly practical presentation starting with the KiwiSDR basics of how to get started. Of special interest is the ability to use the KiwiSDR in remote locations as a tracking remote receiver directly controlled by your normal (late model) transceiver - this has immense DX and contesting potential. And it doesn't even have to be your own KiwiSDR !. Jamie's presentation is on his applied research and development in the practical use and application of the KiwiSDR, and will cover how to utilise these incredibly innovative and flexible devices.

Don't forget that our friends at Icom are helping out with a cool rig 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.
