Thanks to a lot of work by club members a good display was set up and operated outside the library
with the approval of the library staff
Ric set up and operated the national system and IRLP contacting many of the other amateur radio day stations round the country. Alister using a small PA system explained to the public was going on, had a promotional video playing on a large TV set and had a well presented display of his many morse keys. This worked in well with the morse practicse oscillator which Ross brought along allowing the public to actually operate hear their own morse compared with the high quality morse from Alister's cassette . Arnie came up from Mahia and had a large display of portable aerials, magazines and much radio equipment.  Robert, who along with Arnie supplied their own tables, set up Echolink using mobile broadband internet on a large widescreen monitor. (This was also very useful for the APRS internet site letting us see where the president's vehicle had been). I had an off air display of APRS showing the APRS stations on the air in the eastern part of the North Island
 Alan provided the main table, scones and other assistance. It was especially good to see how many other branch members also where there, Rolly, Roger, Erol, Frank to mention those I spoke to
