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 in the Operators Cottage 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 24th January 2022, 7:30 for 8 p.m., Wireless Hill.
  2. VHF Group Activity Day: Saturday 5th February is our next activity day at Wireless Hill, from noon.
