To all Branch 46 Members and associates
New Zealand Amateur Radio Day 2014
Saturday 15th of February 2014 - 0900-1200 hours local time
Library Square - Russian Jack's Park
We would like to see as many members of the Branch 46 as possible take part in this event
The purpose of New Zealand Amateur Radio Day is to promote our hobby to the public so that some may be encouraged to join the local club, take on classes and become amateur radio operators.
Encourage the public to come and find out all about Amateur Radio and what the Radio Hams do for their community. Branch members will be operating equipment and will be free to answer any questions on our fascinating hobby.
It is important that we make people aware of and celebrate Amateur Radio in NZ and the role of Amateur Radio operators in Civil Defence, disaster communication and a wide range of public service functions.
We should also tell people how easy it is to gain a licence for the hobby.
We will attempt operation Masterton 680 Pariwhariki 7175, the National System or IRLP to initiate communication and attempt 80m contacts on 3685 ± 5 or 7085 ± 5 as may be possible.
We will set up from 0800 to operate from 0900 to 1200.
Please email me at email@example.com if you can be involved. If you can't make a commitment just turn up on the day and enjoy the fun
