Last weekend (same as Dayton) saw the WIA's annual convention  held near Adelaide.  Part of the festivities was an outdoor amateur radio come and try day organised by local radio clubs.

This 30 min video features a 'Project Horus' balloon launch into near space.  We also look at the equipment inside a chaser car to retrieve the balloon and a demonstration of amateur equipment and communication on the microwave bands up to 47 GHz.  Many more facets of the hobby and interviews are also featured.
