So far a few clubs are registered for our hobby's big public relations event, World Amateur Radio Day the 17th of April.

The Scout Radio and Electronic Service unit have registered their intent to participate, Tasmanias Central Coast Amateur Radio Club is to set up in Hiscutt Park Melbournes EMDRC is booked at Lilydale Park, with a second EMDRC entry just received for the Jaycar carpark, corner of Springvale Road and Princes Highway, Mulgrave and last years winner Amateur Radio Victoria is set again for Point Gellibrand at Williamstown. We know that several other clubs are talking about registration and will do so in coming days.

With only weeks to go a lot more clubs and groups of individuals should get right behind this nationwide effort to take amateur radio and show what it has to offer the public.

All it really needs is knowledgeable and well presented people to explain amateur radio, plus a well presented station.

The rules are now available here on the WIA website (click this Link) so plan immediately to get involved with the WIA National Field Day, read the article on the WIA website. A summary appears in this months Amateur Radio magazine.

Tune-in to world Amateur Radio gets people talking Sunday the 17th of April.
