The core of a wire carries no radio fre-quency current and performs no electricalservice, because of this radio frequency phe-nomena called skin effect. The core maytherefore be made to perform a greater me-chanical duty. Hence the ideal wire forradio antenna should have a core of greatstrength (steel) and an outer covering of highconductivity (copper).

33 Postcards- Ritz

33 Postcards Movie Premiere At Randwick Ritz Sydney, by Eva Rinaldi

Tonight saw 33 Postcards enjoy its premiere at the Randwick Ritz, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The night was not only a movie premiere but also an event somewhat designed to raise awareness and funds for educational and arts programs, tied into the film.

33 Postcards enjoyed strong media support by popular radio station 2UE and benefiting Sydney Children’s Choir and their Bursary Program, giving disadvantaged kids musical and educational opportunities that would have otherwise likely been out of their grasp.

The acclaimed cast and crew of 33 Postcards enjoyed drinks and bites with their fan base, insiders, and entertainment media, and also lapped up performances from the Sydney Children’s Choir and Chinese Lion Dancers.

Then it was time for the Australian theatrical premiere of the flick.

The film was shot in both China and Sydney, Australia in 2010. It’s the story of Chinese orphan Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) who for a decade of dreams about embracing her Australian sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce). It’s not until she reaches 16 years of age, when her orphanage travels down under to Australia to attend a Choir Festival, Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds however is a far cry from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched, together they begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance. It’s trial, tribulation, and living to fight and survive another day.

Dean is actually a convict in prison for manslaughter, so you can imagine the issues that brings on.

33 postcards won the Community Relations Commission Award at Sydney Film Festival and Victor Dominello MP NSW Minister aptly stated "33 Postcards, inspired by real life stories, explores how two individuals come together despite two different cultures, ages and unexpected circumstances." This evocative film portrays sensitively how people of vastly different cultural backgrounds can interact effectively in our society."

This is an unique and touching story that is rarely told about the relationship that some Aussies have with Chinese Orphans.

It’s not quite for everyone, but if you like a story of survival, beating the odds and the world coming together as one sort of thing, this is likely for you.

Well done to everyone involved in making the event a success.

Stars:

Guy Pearce, Zhu Lin, Claudia Karvan, and Lincoln Lewis

Produced by: Australia-China co-production

Amateur Radio Information & Resources

Amateur Radio Information & Resources

Amateur radio, also known as ham radio, is a hobby and service that millions of people throughout the world partake in. Various types of radio communications are used by participants, called “hams”, for public services, recreation, and self-training. While some may think that the term “amateur” implies a lack of skill, the term amateur refers to the fact that the operators of the communication devices work outside of an official governmental or commercial position.

The practicing of amateur radio did not fully begin until the early 20th century, while origins trace back to at least the late 19th century. There are several different types of transmission by which participants communicate. Voice transmission is the most common form of communication amongst hams. Another form of communication, which dates back to the earliest days of radio, includes radiotelegraphy using Morse code, a system developed by Samuel Morse in the 19th century.

There are many countries that use amateur radio. All operators require a licensing exam in which participants display their knowledge and understanding of amateur radio. There are three different levels of an amateur radio-licensing exam: technician class, general class, and amateur extra class. In order to become involved the amateur radio world, it is best to start by looking for a local club. At these clubs, you can find licensing, operation, and technical information. Newcomers require independent studying by using books or receiving help from a teacher or mentor.

Call signs are a vital aspect of amateur radio. Operators must use specific call signs to legally identify themselves or their station in situations regarding national government issues. Radio amateurs may also modify any transmitting equipment without government permission or certification. As long as technical parameters are met, hams have a lot of freedom with the use of radio equipment.

For further information about amateur radio, visit the following websites:

Where is the best place to find information on local Dallas amateur golf tournaments? (Scrambles, 4-balls,etc)?

Question by Robwizzle: Where is the best place to find information on local Dallas amateur golf tournaments? (Scrambles, 4-balls,etc)?
I’ve looked all over the internet and can not find any site that lists local golf tournaments in North Texas. I’m not looking for PGA or Amateur events. I’m looking for the scrambles and 4-balls that are played at local courses around this part of the state.

Best answer:

Answer by googie
In CT, we contact the CSGA which has a listing of all the tournaments, USGA qualifiers and state qualifiers for all of its major events. Your state organization should be the source of information. Also contact the pro at the nearest country club. He/She is usually aware of the upcoming events.
