Welcome to WA VHF Group

The Western Australian VHF Group was formed in 1955 with a core focus on very-high and ultra-high frequency radio communication such as: satellite, Earth-Moon-Earth and other applications of the frequencies above 30MHz. However, member interest extends well beyond VHF/UHF.

Anyone with an interest in amateur communication is welcome at our activities and meetings.

We have regular meetings at Wireless Hill in Ardross, just south of Perth (see map): 8:00 pm on the fourth Monday of the month (except December). People arrive from 7:30 for a chat and coffee.  We also have activity days, usually on the 1st Saturday of each month (except January), and on 3rd Saturday of each month (except December) - 12 noon, till about 4:30 pm. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly altered our schedule and arrangements, updates appear on our FaceBook page, and usually mirrored here:

  1. Monthly meeting: Monday 25th October 2021, 7:30 for 8pm pm, Wireless Hill. This meeting will be at City of Melville's AH Bracks Library, 431 Canning Hwy, Melville.
