Hi Everybody,
Sad news from Port Lincoln today. Yesterday we had a bushfire threaten 
the outskirts of Port Lincoln during a Catastrophic Fire danger day (FDI 
Strong, hot North winds made fighting the fire impossible and a wind 
change made things a lot worse. 12 homes were lost, countless sheds and 
rural properties have been destroyed... but thankfully, no lives were 
lost but it's not going to be a merry Christmas for some families this 
I've uploaded a video showing what's left of the Lower Eyre Peninsula 
ARC clubrooms to YouTube :-
Our voice repeaters and APRS digipeaters are still operational, but we 
won't be operating from VK5ALE any more.
