John Moyle Field Day
A HUGE, HUGE thanks to those that braved the rain and mud to visit Murrenbong for this years John Moyle Field day contest! It was incredible how wet the site was by Sunday morning.
This years John Moyle field day saw only the die-hard camping enthusiests out at Murrenbong campsite all weekend. But, the persistance to enjoy the weekend and operate in the spirit of the contest meant those that participated made enough contacts for the club to win the contest in the All mode, HF category!
