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!
