SARTS Meeting September 2015

This month’s meeting fell on a Public Holiday – Hari Raya Haji. Darryl had reminded members on the SARTS Website that the meeting would go on in spite of the holiday.

Turnout was quite good, and members and visitors were already eyeballing way before meeting time. There was a poolside party just outside our meeting room and the noise was a bit distracting, but it added to the overall liveliness of the meeting.

Joe 9V1/VK3YSP and Julie VK3FOWL of the Melbourne Amateur Radio Technology Group gave a talk on their entry for the 2015 Global Space Balloon Challenge.

Both talks drew many questions from the floor, and the meeting did not disperse until past 11 pm!

It was a great meeting and see you next month!
