ACTIVITIES

Social meetings are held weekly with some members catching up every Sunday at 2 pm at the Infuse Cafe located in the Tura Beach Shopping Centre. These are informal, social meetings where members and newcomers meet up for a chat about a range of topics including but not restricted to Amateur Radio. Everyone is invited to come up and say hello and share a coffee or two with us.

Formal Club meetings are conducted throughout the year both in person and online via Zoom. You can keep up to date with upcoming meetings via the News section on the Home page.

Field Days are lots of fun and involve setting up a temporary radio station in sometimes remote locations and making contacts with other Amateur radio operators around Australia and the World using radio bands from HF (High Frequencies) to UHF (Ultra High Frequencies). Field Days provide us with the opportunity to set up and test radio equipment away from the power grid. Aside from playing with radios, Field Days are a great time to catch up personally with other members and enthusiasts and to socialise. We participate in several Field Days annually both in the High Country and in areas right down to the Coast.
