WADARC Presentation & Awards Evening 2006
Our annual Hot Pot, Presentations and Awards evening
took place on Wed 11th October. This
year the construction contest brought in 5 entries from four people with an extremely high standard
both of constructional ability and designs clearly "thinking out of the box". The Judges had some
difficult decisions to make, but were swayed, to some extent, by the amount of "Home Brew"
content which has been the cornerstone of the best traditions of Amateur Radio.
The four members introduced their entries and
finished with questions from the audience. As is now
traditional, a superb Hot Pot was prepared by Brian G0VAX and served just after 9pm. Once clear,
the presentations began. Below are photos of the entries and the presentations.
Thanks to Gordon G8MMM, our Chairman, for hosting a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Above are the four competition entrants:-
