CAR RALLY 2003 REPORT

Brisbane Area WICEN Group CAR RALLY REPORT  2003

Last weekend the Caloundra's Falken Rally Queensland organised by the Brisbane Sporting Car Club took place. 

The Brisbane Area WICEN Group Inc. with assistance of Amateur Operators from as far North as Rockhampton and as far South as Melbourne, manned the start and stop points and transmitted the start times and scored times using packet, to rally headquarters at Caloundra. 

In addition an Amateur Radio Operator was positioned at all of the Safety On Stage points situated every 5kms along the track. 

Portable voice repeaters were set up on Mt Borumba and Mt Kandanga, while packet was relayed from the field to Mt Kandanga, digipeated to Maleny then on to Rally base at Caloundra. 

This year saw a major upgrade of the group's equipment with the voice repeaters being linked together by UHF, so that most of the operators were able to sign on to Mt Kandanga when they left home for the exercise. 

Also the scoring software had to be rewritten to allow for scoring to 1/10 of a second.

 Special thanks must go to Nev VK4TX who took 3 weeks annual leave just to prepare for the event.  Thanks must also go to the Sunshine Coast Radio Club who organised the scoring of the "Hella Hill Climb" and to the Queensland Digital Group for their assistance with organising the equipment upgrade.  Also to Brian VK4XS who had to revise his software. 

VK4TX says in the lead up to the official presentations at the ARC dinner the Clerk of the Course acknowledged each of the major sponsors by name and made a general thanks to the other sponsors.  Then he made the following statement (words to this effect): "I acknowledge the assistance provided by many people and by the WICEN group who have the best meals on Mt Kandanga.  WICEN are amateur radio Operators who provided us with the scores and safety communications during the event. Without them we would not be able to have this event." 

Again, Neville says congratulations on your professional service provided to the ARC. "All I can do is to congratulate each of you on a job well done".

 (Nev VK4TX and Ray VK4KV President Brisbane Area WICEN Group Inc) 2003
