20160904 Recognising Your WIA

Post date: Sep 3, 2016 12:12:58 AM

What does your Wireless Institute of Australia look like? Andrew Smith, a Director of the Institute, discusses the contrast between two organisations that should operate similarly. But do they?

The NewsWest team continues its 2016 focus on 85 years of Amateur Radio News in Western Australia, and this week’s NewsWest takes a look at Amateur Radio and the Institute as they were in September 1936, and as they are now.

Historical items are from the Amateur Radio magazine, September 1936.

In other items you will hear about what’s coming up in Amateur Radio in Perth this week, along with equipment up for adoption, and Onno’s Foundations of Amateur Radio.

NewsWest goes to air several times on Sunday, and is available for download and podcast. Visit vk6.net to find out how to listen to NewsWest.
