20180429 - VK6WIA NewsWest for Sunday, 29 April 2018 - Clubs across Australia Edition

posted Apr 27, 2018, 8:40 PM by Bob Bristow
In this week’s special edition of NewsWest, we invited Amateur Radio clubs across Australia to tell us who they are and what they get up to. We are hoping that it will result in a better understanding of what makes other clubs tick, and to share ideas about what they get up to.

This is a new initiative from NewsWest, and it's an idea that we will use again another time.

In addition to club information, we bring you our regular weekly spots of Roy’s Helpline, Onno’s Foundations of Amateur Radio, and where and when all the Amateur Radio meetings are this week in Western Australia. And Mills On The Air. Have you ever heard of that? You have now.

Our website vk6.net where you'll find a copy of this news, a calendar of events, contests and meetings and contact points for clubs and courses across Western Australia.

newswest@vk6.net is the address for feedback and the deadline for submissions is noon on Friday.

If you have questions or comments, feedback, good or bad, the address is newswest@vk6.net.

You'll find links to resources on the vk6.net website where you'll also find information on where to hear the news, where to download it, how to rebroadcast this news and how to register your callbacks.

If you want to join in, you can. Send an email to newswest@vk6.net and we'll be happy to respond. Send your stories, tall or true, audio production, scripts, events, updates, membership information, meeting announcements, AGM alerts, contests, swap-meets and more to us and we'll happily present your contribution on-air.

Please register your callback, either on-air, or on-line. Visit vk6.net and click on the callback button. You can also subscribe to our announcement list and we'll let you know when the news is hot off the press.

Originating in Perth Western Australia NewsWest is produced by WA Amateur Radio News for listeners on-air, on-line and on-demand.
