Some 30-odd clubs and groups will reach out to the public this Sunday during the Tune-In to the World, Amateur Radio gets people talking - WIA National Field Day.

It's not too late for groups of three or more to register as field stations, or for individuals to line up to keep the bands active. We hope that newcomers who take to the microphone for the first time have an enjoyable experience. The main aims on the Sunday, which celebrates World Amateur Day in Australia, is to showcase what amateur radio has on offer and the help those who are interested to join the hobby. The life-long recreational, educational and self-achievement aspects are best explained in the words of five newcomers to amateur radio. These have been provided for duplication so they can be handed out on the day. Also supplied is a single page that briefly explains it all. Along with the Calling CQ brochure they make ideal handouts at any time. Artworks for a banner is available on the WIA website, along with the rules and of course the locations and bands that will be in use. Check them out and see how many you can contact.

Among the latest to join is the newly formed Central Queensland Amateur Radio Association - at both the Bunnings Warehouse carpark in North Rockhampton and the Mount Morgan Range. Not bad having just been formed and with more than 20 enthusiastic members. Another entry has been received from the Orange and District Amateur Radio Club VK2AOA contacts with all public stations are sure to be sought after.

In all 30-odd teams are lined up for the Tune-In to the World, Amateur Radio gets people talking - public relations event.

Remember the day - Sunday the 17th of April.
