Antennapalooza is  a friendly and informal event in Victoria for amateur radio enthusiasts to gather and listen to presentations on various amateur radio related topics.

The organisers try to keep the presentations light, with the focus on practice rather than theory.  Antennapalooza is now in it’s eighth year with annual improvements to the venue, facilities and spread of topics. In 2023 the theme is “Station Efficiency”.

In the past we’ve acknowledged individual contributors, but the list is never long enough, never covers everyone who’s making an effort, visible, audible or otherwise, so instead.
