This Week in Amateur Radio

North America's Premiere Amateur Radio News Magazine

Via Southgate: VK6WIA NewsWest

In NewsWest for Sunday 17th July 2022, we look at the history of Amateur Radio, with stories from the early days of Amateur Radio in Perth, through to the establishment of a Royal Amateur Radio Society in the Hutt River Province.

There’s a follow up on last week’s Band Plans story, and we hear the good news about QRM Guru being endorsed by the ACMA.

These stories and more are heard right here on NewsWest, where our catchphrase is “If it isn’t Amateur Radio, it isn’t Amateur Radio News”

NewsWest is produced by WA Amateur Radio News, and is primarily aimed at the VK6 audience, however our content is relevant to, and heard by, a much wider audience.   Visit our website, VK6.NET, to learn more about NewsWest and W.A. Amateur Radio News.
