During the weekly F-troop there are mentions of software, websites and solutions that are worth taking note of. This website attempts to document them.
On Tuesday morning (11th October 2016) Andrew VK6AS and I were on the road by 8.30 a.m. and on our way to Mount Gambier. We had a scheduled talk that evening at the clubrooms of the South East Radio Group (SERG). Our talk the previous night at the Blackwood Community Centre, hosted by AHARS, attracted around 100 amateurs from most of the Adelaide metropolitan clubs.
It was a 404 km trip ahead of us and we had decided to activate a park along the way and introduce Andrew to the wonderful world of park activating. However, the weather was not on our side. It was drizzling with rain.
