VK100WIA takes a step back in time

A very successful time was had last weekend by the Sunraysia Radio Club at the tri-annual Junction Rally where the Murray and Darling rivers meet in Wentworth. Vintage tractors and steam engines popped and chugged, while paddleboats cruised the rivers with organisers recording more than 3,000 visitors at the event.

VK100WIA was put on air and the atmosphere of the rally could be heard in the background during many of the QSOs made by operators from the Sunraysia Radio Group, with President Garry VK3KYF declaring it a great effort by all involved. Hundreds of people learnt about the Centenary of Organised Amateur Radio in Australia and view a display of vintage radio items. Good publicity was obtained that included coverage in the Independent Star online newspaper and a mention on a local TV news sessions.
