Alan VK2MET shares with us a WICEN event for today, 09-Jan-2021:

G'day,

WICEN NSW, a support squad of Volunteer Rescue Association, will be conducting an informal communications exercise on the weekend 9-10 January 2021 and invites amateur radio clubs across New South Wales and ACT to participate.

WICEN will establish a base station at Little Bay, Sydney, with WICEN members across NSW setting up home or field stations as part of a wider exercise.

Exercise net control operators at Little Bay will monitor the following frequencies, passing messages and accepting check-ins from WICEN members and other amateur radio operators:
