The Western Australian VHF Group was formed in 1955 with a core focus on very-high and ultra-high frequency radio communication such as: satellite, Earth-Moon-Earth and other applications of the frequencies above 30MHz. However, member interest extends from LW through EHF and the technology to utilise those frequencies.
Anyone with an interest in amateur communication is welcome at our activities and meetings.
We have regular meetings in the Operators Cottage at Wireless Hill in Ardross, just south of Perth (see map): 7:30 pm (local / West Australian Time) on the fourth Monday of the month (except December). People arrive from 7 p.m. for a chat and coffee. We also have activity days, usually on the 1st Saturday of each month (except January), and on 3rd Saturday of each month (except December) - 12 noon (local time), till about 4:30 pm. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly altered our schedule and arrangements, updates appear on our FaceBook page, and usually mirrored here:
- Next monthly meeting: Monday 26th September, from noon - at Operators Cottage Wireless Hill, Ardross
- Next group activity day: Saturday 1st October, from noon - at Operators Cottage Wireless Hill, Ardross.
