Tube Radio Australia
Radio Field Trip November 2010

This was our field trip to Heaton State Forest, Radio's were a plenty, and contacts on the night included New Zealand on 80M, and hearing other 80M stations in South and North America.

Contacts were attempted on the Sunday morning with limited success on the WWII equipment, although we made the grade in getting through to the call backs on the WIA

the response was that we were out of there pass band and had a heterodyne. Funny that, we were on AM after all.
