Well part two of EMCOMM training what a joke and a BIG waste of
money if your not a local from the Bundaberg area don't waste
your time doing it (more so if you come from a small town) with
only one or two amateur's in it then you don't have a chance
of passing the course and getting a certificate and the course
is not even worth doing.

Well i arrived home from Bundaberg last Sunday night after doing
part two of the EMCOMM'S Course and at the moment I would not
recommend doing it to any one at the moment due to one or two
thing's that happened down there last weekend but i might change
my mind about it but will see in about five week's if i do or not.

The other day my 80 mx dipole rope broke at the top of my 30 foot mast
so i put a ladder up the side of the mast and climbed it to put a new rope
though the mast pully but only got halfway though the job when the
ground gave way and the mast and i both hit the road beside my house
i have just put some photo's of the accident on the photo page of
this web site...David VK4DJC.
