WIA National Field Day 2012

Date : 22 / 10 / 2011
Author : Philip Adams - VK3JNI

The dates of the next WIA National Field Day is the weekend of the 14th and 15th of April 2012. Providing two days of possible operation will support club requests for some flexibility to suit their local community with operation on either the Saturday or Sunday. This is not suggesting that the clubs would need to operate their displays over the two days unless they wanted to.

Advertising material will require a little customising by local clubs to match the times and date of the local activity. Acknowledging valuable feedback from clubs, some changes to the rules and guidelines of the 2012 event will be advised to support the two days of operation of this event as it is certainly not a traditional AR contest. The rewarding or recognition of clubs who take pride in their preparation and presentation will still be encouraged.

The objective of the WIA National Field Day is to positively place the hobby of amateur radio in front of the general public, to provide various clubs with an opportunity to promote their activities and increase the awareness of amateur radio training opportunities, either via the local clubs or the amateur radio fraternity as a whole.

Expressions of Interest - WIA NFD Committee
The event will continue to be coordinated and managed by a small committee. In September, interested parties where invited to express their interest in joining this committee. Please forward your expression of interest via your state WIA Advisory Committee members prior to the 28th of October 2011. The chair of each Advisory Committee is asked to forward these nominations during the first week of November to the WIA office. Former committee members are welcome to nominate if they wish to continue in this role.
