A busy couple of weeks

August 10, 2011 Comments off

It’s been a really busy couple of weeks so I haven’t had much time to post anything here. I think that’s a good thing because the ‘doing’ is more important than the ‘writing’. I’m still short of time so this post isn’t going to be filled with details and deep thoughts, just a brief note of some of the things I’ve been doing and a few pictures to go with them …

No matter how much planning …

It seems that no matter how much planning you do, sometimes it’s never enough.

Why is that 90% of the activities are squashed into 25% of the year, or so it seems.

Radio Rally Evolution

May 18, 2011 2 comments

Successful amateur radio rallies have had to evolve in order to survive in a changing environment. National and international rallies can attract significant numbers of exhibitors and visitors (Dayton, Friedrichshafen, Tokyo etc), but many local rallies have had to reduce in size and/or change their focus in order to survive.

Evolution : the change over time in one or more inherited traits found in populations of organisms. Inherited traits are particular distinguishing characteristics, including anatomical, biochemical or behavioural characteristics, that are passed on from one generation to the next. Evolution may occur when there is variation of inherited traits within a population.
