John Moyle Field Day

Edit: you can read about the brigade's efforts for the John Hoyle Field Day 2015 here.


This year members of Sawyers Valley Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade will be participating in the annual John Moyle Field Day. The Field Day is an amateur radio competition run by the Wireless Institute of Australia to promote amateur radio field operation and emergency preparedness. Amateur radio license holders are encouraged to participate by setting up radio systems away from their home or normal place of operating.

Members of the brigade will be setting up several radio systems on the morning of Saturday the 21st of March, with radio operations to begin later in the afternoon. The brigade would like to invite interested members of other brigades to participate, either by setting up their own station or by visiting ours during the competition. All members will be welcome, with even non-license holders being able to actively participate in the competition (under supervision of a license holder).

If you're interested in getting involved you can contact the brigade.
