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.
