It’s been another busy week for the NewsWest team, with multiple deadlines and Andrew heading over to Adelaide.

In this broadcast:
- Onno talks about the evolution of amateur radio over time and its technical diversity
- Andrew in his editorial explains the challenges the new WIA board have in front of them in the wake of the AGM – and why it’s important to us as members
- We hear from Ty and what’s coming up next at the WA VHF Group
- Targeting new (and sometimes old) HAMs, we discuss:

- Some advice for once you get your license – with 3 possible first steps to get you started,

- What you can expect on air,

- And why it’s important to join the WIA.

- A few quick reminders about meetings, the upcoming 800th Technet, as well as the VK Shires Contest
- and… Roy’s back – looking to hear from YOU… yes… You!!

In late breaking news, Andrew has called in to give us an update from the Wireless Institute of Australia Annual General Meeting….
A special thanks to Andrew for taking time out after the AGM in Hahndorf to call us, and working with Onno to get this in time for our production deadline.
