Everything is flowing along nicely for the 2016 ILLW event. A team of 5 hams from AHARS will be operational at Cape Willoughby as from Friday 19th-Monday 22nd August 2016.
We are back on the mainland after 3 very enjoyable nights at Cape Willoughby.
Only an estimation, as we are yet to put all the logs together, but about 500 QSO's were made on SSB, CW, & PSK31.
Weather conditions were extreme at times with winds gusting up to 140 kph, rain, hail, lightning, and many roads flooded.
Looking forward to next year.
We have arrive don the island safely. Although it was a very interesting trip with very heavy seas and rain. The ferry had trouble berthing at Penneshaw. Winds gusting to 11 kph.
At last night's Adelaide Hills Amateur Radio Society (AHARS) Committee meeting, it was agreed that we would purchase 5 filters for 80m, 40m, 20m, 15m, & 10m.
