Another Very Successful NSW Central Coast Field Day
The VK2 annual Central Coast Field Day was held on Sunday, February 20 and was as usual very well attended. Amateur travelled from overseas and interstate as well as every corner of New South Wales to enjoy the camaraderie of the day and spend up big on all the bargains on sale.

The National WIA set up a stand on the first floor in the coffee lounge area, most of the WIA directors were in attendance. It seemed from the hectic pace that most of those attending the field day dropped in for a chat, ask questions, make suggestions or join up.
The stand featured several items which will be sold by the soon to be established National WIA store. The items on display included WIA caps, polo neck shirts, summer wind jackets and a carry bag.
Several of the new posters promoting amateur radio were featured along with some video material on BPL.
WIA membership was also promoted on the stand and 28 people opted to join on the day. This along with the 9 other members who joined during the week added 37 new members, which was around a 1% increase in WIA membership for the week.
The very successful day concluded with all those involved hoping to set up the stand in future at as many events possible.
