The principle activities of WAARN are the compilation and broadcasting of the weekly NewsWest Amateur Radio News programme for Western Australia, and maintenance of the VK6.NET website. Other activities include development and staging of activities that educate Amateurs on aspects of their hobby, and promote Amateur Radio to the general community.
In addition to these team members, a whole range of volunteers put the news to air every week. Their contribution is valuable, and is regularly acknowledged on-air and, you can thank them when you provide a call back at the conclusion of the news.
Amateur Radio news broadcasts commenced in Western Australia in 1931.
If you have content, or an update, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will update the website.
Our next effort was a large event, "Perth Tech 2016", this time a one day seminar in Perth in April 2016, aimed at providing a handful of presentations and demonstrations by Amateurs who are skilled in particular subjects.
