Alan Simpson memorial home brew competition

The award is open to QDG members.
Alan VK4AAE was one of the founding QDG members; he always strived to do his best in any endeavour.
This competition is to be judged by members present at the August QDG general meeting each year.
The best quality, most well built or most innovative radio related home built project you have personally assembled will be judged by members present at the meeting.
Your project may consist of hardware, software or firmware and could be anything from lines of computer code to an antenna tower or your very own fully functional TARDIS.
The first, second and third place winners will receive a certificate to frame and put on your shack wall.

 QDG Renewed

Friday March 14 2008 saw four people turn up to the last QDG Inc. meeting.
Alan VK4YAR presented the books for 2007 and 2008 and we formally closed QDG Inc.

Those present decided to form a new informal club called Queensland Digital Group to take the form of a
technical amateur radio club for both digital and non digital modes. Initially this will not a formal
group with officers. Alan VK4YAR / VK4NA is the contact person.

The QDG web site with pages for other clubs, Digipeat email newsletter and Jota activities will continue.

As of May 13 2015 the QDG has 65 members.

Brisbane Area WICEN has taken over the Queensland Digital Group packet and voice networks

QDG members are encouraged to join Brisbane area WICEN to help keep
the networks going.
