NewsWest 9th June 2019 - History of Amateur Radio

posted Jun 7, 2019, 7:37 PM by Bob Bristow

Welcome to NewsWest, the local  Amateur Radio programme for Western Australia.  Today we look at the history of Amateur Radio, with snippets from as far back as 1924.  As we do these history segments, it’s quite clear that we are facing very similar issues as did our Grandfathers in the hobby. Will it ever change?

The team this week is Andrew, Mike, Dan and Roy, and myself, Bob VK6POP, the producer for this week.  Steve VK6SJ discusses the JIm Rumble Award, a VK6 “amateur of the Year” award.


There’s an item about New Packet Radio by Steve VK6ST, however Steve lost his voice last week, and so you’ll hear it in another voice.


Andrew will be our Roving Reporter for a few weeks, as he wanders around down there on the bottom of the world, in the Northern Hemisphere, while Dan brings us an interview with Steve VK6CS, talking about his visit to Radio Caroline, way back when.


Roy regales us with his weekly helpline, and there’s more.  All on NewsWest, The best all Amateur Radio news you’ll hear.

Newswest for Sunday 2nd June 2019

posted May 31, 2019, 1:19 AM by acsmith54

There has been a great response from clubs for our club focus, this is really encouraging.  We have reports from the HARG, NCRG, PARG, WA VHF Group, Ham College and WAARN.

 

We also have a wrap from the WIA AGM and convention.  WIA Director Harry VK6YBZ gives us his view and as the Radio Amateur Society of Australia was invited to answer questions there is a short piece from them too. The AGM and forum were recorded and so there is an interesting little snippet of opinion from a VK5 member

 

Pressure of time means that some of our usual magazine style elements are missing, it is a very full programme, please enjoy!
