We are a incorparated Amatuer Radio Club (CBRS)

For more information, click the Contact Us link.

The Club was founded as an interest group in the 70,s and the firstly played around with CB before its introduction to Australia. Naturally this led to amateur radio and as the club grew and was further  affiliated with the WIA. Most members attained amatuer callsigns via instruction at Mt Gravatt TAFE (no courses are available these days) . The club competes in many of the gazzetted WIA contests and has won several outright. John Moyle Memorial Field Day Contest and also the VHF/UHF section several times. Some of the stories told by  the longer term club members have been spoken about many times, in which on one of the field day contest at Mt Wolvi near Gympie, after setting up and operating for most of the day and half the nite ,they were hit by a cyclone and visited by a bull in the sleeping quarters , yes a bull “no bullshit they say, so I guess its true.”

A Renewed interest in field day, has started a few trips away to some of the scenic hill tops, available in northern NSW and southern Queensland, Coran, Wolvi’ Byron Bay to name a few  and many others. We are currently using a private property near Gatton with a height of 600 metres, for Vhf/Uhf Field days.

Our members like to get involved with all aspects of ham radio and have been building projects and updating field day gear as the need arises

The club also conducts WIA exams and around 100 students have taken the foundation and upgrades with us.

As a Club we are aways conducting ourselves in accordence to our management statement and the ACMA regulations. This being the reason for the clubs existance is to have fun and expand the hobby, for all members new and old. We are also searching for a club house; as to further our club projects and help with the disabled members.
