Melbourne Cup Day - 160m AM activity

Today was Melbourne Cup Day. A public holiday. We're possibly the only place in the world to have a public holiday for a horse race. But it provides an opportunity for people to get onto 160 metres AM. Which has become a bit of a tradition here with a higher than normal number of portable stations on the air. 

These are some videos of activity over various Melbourne Cup days. 





What 160m AM did I do today? Quite a bit. More in a future post. 

PS: Heard about my new book? It's Australia's own amateur radio handbook. Available in both electronic and paperback form, you can find out more here
