On Sunday the 30th of May during the WIA Centenary convention held in Canberra, the weekly Sunday morning VK1WIA broadcast hosted by Graham VK4BB was transmitted live from the radio shack at the Rydges Lakeside Hotel. It was then uploaded to the WIA website for further retransmission around the globe.

  WIA President Michael Owen VK3KI
  WIA Vice President Ewan McLeod VK4ERM
  WIA Secretary Geoff Atkinson VK3AFA
  WIA Office Manager Mal Brookes VK3FDSL
  WIA Director Philip Adams VK3JNI on behalf of the National Field Day committee.

Also present for the broadcast long time WIA National News Presenters
  VK1PE Peter Ellis
  VK2JJW John Williams
  VK3DN Robert Broomhead who also was technical producer

The broadcast prompted host VK4BB to (tongue in cheek) change his call sign to VK0BB on that cold Canberra Morning! Also appearing on the broadcast thanks to Robert VK3DNs earlier recordings were Centenary Patron Dick Smith VK2DIK and ISS Astronaut Tracy Caldwell-Dyson KF5DBF

The broadcast was also filmed to be aired on Melbourne’s Digital ATV repeater.
