WIA Conference Weekend Update

Date : 15 / 05 / 2019
Author : WIA

Nine days to go until we begin the WIA Conference Weekend.

It begins on the Friday 24th May 2019 with a huge celebration of the Waverley Amateur Radio Club's (WARS) Centenary. This is being held in the Marconi Terrace and Function Room in the Sydney Town Hall on the Friday night.

The key-note speaker for the WARS centenary celebration is David Dufty. David is the author of The Secret Code-Breakers of Central Bureau: how Australia’s signals-intelligence network helped win the Pacific War.

It tells the story of the country’s significant code-breaking and signals-intelligence achievements during the Second World War. This should be a fascinating key note presentation.

On Saturday 25th May 2019 at the WIA Annual Conference Dinner the keynote speaker will be Professor Fred Watson AM.

Professor Watson has been an astronomer at the Australian Astronomical Observatory since 1995, and his main scientific interest is in the use of novel technology to gather information on very large numbers of stars and galaxies. This will also be a fascinating keynote presentation and one not to be missed!

It would not be a WIA Conference without our friends at Icom helping out with a cool piece of kit as a prize. ICOM and RF Solutions have come to the party by sponsoring the event with an IC-7300 to be drawn as a prize.

To celebrate the event, RF solutions have also made available 10 x black ID-51Aplus2 handhelds at a discount price of $495.00 (inc GST). They will be available to collect on Saturday the 26th at the AGM. To order, call Carsten, 07 3264 6443 ( Link

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.
