WIA Directors actively support the PR4AmateurRadio Expo

When the idea of a concentrated effort to publicise Amateur Radio was first mentioned, the very busy WIA Board of Directors, eagerly embraced the concept. Now with less than a month to go, WIA President Phil Wait VK2ASD and other WIA Directors are set to either visit an Expo station, or get on air in support.

The WIA late last year, with a few clubs and individuals, took part in the hobby exhibitions - Eurisko in Melbourne and the Mini Maker Faire in Sydney's Powerhouse Museum. It learnt a lot from those two events, including showing to many hobbyists that modern Amateur Radio can handle telemetry for their experiments and other practical experimentation.

Now next month, through the PR4AmateurRadio Expo, we have a concentrated effort to show what Amateur Radio can offer the community. This can be a club having a public event, or exercised by an individual, to show what we do is relevant to a modern technological age, and easily assessable through the Foundation Licence.

The Wireless Institute of Australia wants clubs, organisations and individuals to think about how they can be involved in the PR4AmateurRadio Expo, held during the period of April the 13 to the 15th.

Visit the 'Whats On' column of the WIA website for more details on this exciting event.
