‘Adopt-A-Mill' campaign across Australia
Following Anderson's Mill at Smeaton in Victoria joining the 'Mills on The Air' event in May 2017 as the first Australian registration, comes a second interest from South Australia.
UK Denby Dale Club has only had European mills registered so far in the annual event, but want Australians to join and so already is Anderson's Mill with the Goldfields Amateur Radio Club VK3BI.
Now the Lower Murray Amateur Radio Club VK5ALM, has chosen Dunns Mill, a former a steam flour mill and the oldest building in Mt Barker.
Both mills have their history posted on http://www.adoptamillacrossaustralia.com.au/
More inquiries are welcome from Australian flour, wool, sugar or timber mills. Although six months away, the prospect of adopting a mill and putting it on air May 13 to 15, may be ideal for a number of clubs and individual radio amateurs.
