Once again the Queensland Advisory Committee under Chairman Don Wilschefski VK4BY organised a luncheon meeting of Queensland clubs at the Geebung-Zillmere RSL club near Brisbane on Sunday 15 November 2009.

Representatives of some 14 clubs participated, from as far away as Townsville and Rockhampton.

WIA President Michael Owen VK3KI presented a report on WIA activities. His wide ranging report covered the representation role of the WIA both nationally and internationally, the growing importance of the regional telecommunications organisations in the processes associated with the ITU’s WRCs and the problems this presented for the WIA, the work now undertaken by the WIA on behalf of ACMA, the centenary celebrations and the role of the clubs next year, emergency communications and the financial pressures facing the WIA and the need for the clubs to encourage WIA membership.

WIA Vice President Ewan McLeod VK4ERM lead a discussion on possible activities to attract new people to amateur and Peter Schrader of Emergency Communications in South East Queensland described the provision of emergency communications in the emergency management structure in Queensland.

Graham Kemp VK4BB talked of the WIA broadcasts and demonstrated VK1WIA being transmitted on digital radio.

This was the second successful major WIA meeting of clubs this year, the previous meeting being in Adelaide last September, attended by WIA Director Robert Broomhead VK3DN and President Michael Owen.
