(Came across this interesting idea from VK land for Christmas and getting hams involved in the season.)
You’ll be following and listening to the fox no doubt dressed as Santa.
Yes it’s the Townsville Amateur Radio Clubs annual MONSTER XMAS LIGHTS TOUR.
Get out your Santa Hats, flashy pins and Christmas Costumes and get ready for a magical mystery tour of the light fantastic !
Australia’s famous TARC Monster Xmas Lights Tour is on again, happening Friday evening December 15th.
It’s a Drive Yourself Dazzling Spectacular and all mobile shack chariots will need to monitor 146.5MHz during the tour to hear instructions from the guide (or foxy Santa’s) vehicle.
If you do not have a 2metre transceiver in your vehicle – don’t worry as a
handheld will be lent to you.
Be sure to pack an esky with plenty of cool water and cool bananas as the tour will be happening in a dehydrating climate!
MXLT organiser Gavin VK4ZZ, with help from stage surveyors, is currently
plotting a way around the City of Townsville.
The tour should end by 10pm at a secret destination.
Meet the Christmas spirit also on 2017!

A pleasant Christmas get together was held earlier today at Timmie’s. A lot of pleasant conversation and we got caught up on how various people are doing. Although not planned the topic did get around to emergency preparedness. With our success in Shake Out BC last month we have started an EP module to Coastal Ham Radio. Members will receive the details shortly how to get involved in our virtual EOC. We will have another coffee get together sometime in the New year.
(Will figure out something better then selfies next time)
Looking forward to seeing Coastal Ham Radio members who are able to join us tomorrow morning for our Christmas coffee gathering at Timmie’s. C U at 10
