International Museums Weekends 2014

The WA VHF Group participated in the International Museums Weekends contest on the weekend of 14th and 15th June 2014. We were site number 5306 in a record 90+ sites mainly in the UK and Europe.

This was a special occasion for us as it coincided with the official opening of our new "shack" at the Wireless Hill Transmitter Cottage.   Highlights included the official signing of our Lease Agreement with His Worship The Mayor, Russell Aubrey, and an extended QSO with Victorian stations Joe Gonzales VK3YSP and Julie Gonzales VK3FOWL    Mayor Aubrey participated in a much-appreciated QSO with Joe.   Some photos of the event appear in our website banner.

Propogation conditions into the Northern Hemisphere were unfavourable.   Better luck next year!
