Online Meeting - Colin Christie
The World of Amateur Radio

Colin will present and demonstrate how it is possible to communicate locally and around the world. The presentation will be a non-technical discussion and will cover overseas communication, the use of local FM and new digital repeaters, satellites and the International Space Station. Amateurs can transmit in voice, Morse Code, can send Television pictures and Packet Radio (a form of email send over the airwaves).

There are about 15,000 Amateur Radio Operators in Australia, many of whom provide emergency communications during disasters. You never know who you might talk to next!
