Sydney Amateur Radio Ferry Contest

Two members David, VK2FLDW and Blake, VK2FVBW travelled to Sydney to meet up with Connor, VK2FCAC from IARS to take part in the Inaugural ferry contest.  Many contacts were made on simplex and on the repeaters and QSL cards were exchanged with the many amateurs met on the ferries and wharves.

One thought on “Sydney Amateur Radio Ferry Contest”

  1. Seems like we missed a great event. 2 metres was open that day and the Paddington repeater was there most of the day. Didn’t hear any local call signs though.
