WICEN will have a stand at the Central Coast Amateur Radio Club's Wyong Field Day on 22 February 2015.

One topic of conversation at your publicity officer's Christmas lunch was Use-By dates on unusual items, such as salt, and of course bottled water was mentioned. Such dates are provided because bottled water can become microbiologically unsafe after a period of storage. As such, as part of remaining prepared for activation, operators should check the dates on any such supplies.

WICEN wishes members and listeners a very Happy New Year, and extends its thanks to the Broadcast Team for the year's efforts.

WICEN has a twitter account: @wicennsw

Facebook users will find the official WICEN New South Wales page, an informal national WICEN group, and at least one interstate group.
