Thank you to the 25 clubs and groups registered already for the WIA National Field Day to be held this month. Each has registered on-line for the event that marks World Amateur Radio Day, celebrated throughout the nation on Sunday the 17th of April. It's not too late for any group of three or more to secure a public spot and register at the WIA website

During the week each were sent a draft media release for their completion and issue to the local media. The purposes of the release is to state what, where, how, why and who are involved. Remember those who make a follow-up phone call have the most success. Think about how best to sell our great hobby and make it truly a place to join in. It needs at least one knowledgeable person greet people as they arrive, show what amateur radio has on offer, and how easy it is to get started. Order the "Tune-In the World" clothing, look smart & look the part, plus to get down to Officeworks to get your posters and banners printed ready. Artwork is available to download from the National Field Day page on the WIA website. Officeworks will often do the banner/poster printing overnight. Clothing needs to be ordered in advance, please nominate sizes as required with your order.

Have a look at the WIA website for the artwork ready for download. Do check the rules. It's time to put up those WIA banners that have proven themselves as drawcards to portable displays of amateur radio equipment and experts. For those who will be at home or out mobile, there's the opportunity for you to be the friendly voice at the end of the first QSO of a newcomer looking at what amateur radio has on offer.

Among them are potential recruits to amateur radio - that is what it's all about. Remember the National Field Day, Sunday the 17th of April, next Sunday, Tune-In to World - Amateur Radio gets people talking
