A beautiful day for the rally. Difficult to get up at six but home by eleven to listen to the radio traffic from the later stages. HF gave good usage for the first stages and later a portable repeater was heard in use.  The local repeaters at least in the early stages were mainly used as backup and were especially useful during the set up of the HF station
 The set up at the rally start, six stages with many of the local amateurs assisting the Hawkes Bay amateurs who were responsible for the rally comms which also involved portable repeaters and which should provide good experience for the week long North Island rally next year for those who will be involved
