To quote Bob VK1HBH one of our operators in headquarters, "I would like to comment on the great performance of our recently licensed "F" calls during the rally. I think our F calls acquitted themselves very well indeed with all of them holding their own with the more experienced operators. I think too that their operating technique improved markedly over the course of the weekend as they became more comfortable and confident in the WICEN operation. Some were under a lot of pressure for first timer's in such an important event and they did well...a real credit to their training and enthusiasm. The old hands obviously helped a lot but that is the spirit of amateur radio 'round here now! "
