NewsWest for Sunday 30th May 2021 is the Club Focus edition, where we’ve given space to Amateur Radio clubs to strut their stuff.

We’ve got the regular Club Focus series discussing what Not for Profit means, Roy’s Amateur Radio Helpline, and a discussion on why we need the Wireless Institute of Australia, or something like it.

There’s another update on PerthTech.  You’ll be hearing more of these as we go because we start the PerthTech plan with a blank slate and build it up as we go.

Steve tells us about his trip to Christmas Island, where he’s activating VK9XX - notice the use of the present tense? He’s there now.

We’ve got more to tell you in this bulletin, and it’s all about Amateur Radio, and it’s all relevant to Western Australia.  Find out more about NewsWest and Amateur Radio in Western Australia by visiting our website,
