posted Jan 12, 2019, 12:02 AM by Bob Bristow
In NewsWest for Sunday 13th January 2019 we look into  Amateur Radio History, and we’ve got some interesting snippets for you from way back.

There’s more exciting news about PerthTech on 2nd March. We tell you who’s presenting, and give details of the dinner afterwards.  

We announce the major prize in our super raffle. It’s good stuff, and you won’t want to miss it.  And as usual, Roy will regale us with Helpline

The team this week is Andrew, Dan, Neil and Roy, and for my sins I’m the producer. I’m Bob VK6POP, and let’s get  on with it.
