I was sitting and thinking just now. Most people know what RaDAR is but there is more to it than just radio.

It’s been a few months build up to the contest date. Many radio amteurs spend their time experimenting, testing, discussing results and making new like minded friends.

RaDAR has it’s monthly get together on various frequencies and we’ve all tried to make it work and still do. There are on going discussions and motivations taking place on the Google + RaDAR group. Many hams write their own blogs about their RaDAR experiences. It’s about sharing ideas and learning from one another. RaDAR just gets better and better and it’s because so many people believe in it.

RaDAR is different and forever changing, improving, taking the lead and daring to be different!

Then contest day arrives and it becomes more than a day, more than an afternoon as the excitement builds up by preparing and strategizing. Each very different from the other challenging themselves against whatever nature throws at them and yet all succeed. Certainly in this environment, practice makes perfect!

Then after the contest, exciting discussion on what went right, what went wrong and ideas for the future – to be better. Blogs are written, feedback is given in text and video all sharing very different stories.

What is really great is that RaDAR is global and we have become friends no matter how far away. The Internet and modern social media has certainly been used in the way it should – bringing people together. There is great strength in numbers and many minds with new ideas only make RaDAR even better!
