    NewsWest is the news programme by, for and about Radio Amateurs.

    Today’s focus is on history, however we’ll go a bit light on History so we can give you a wrap on the very successful PerthTech, which was last weekend. We have received glowing feedback from those who attended.


    Roy’s weekly Helpline, which has been running for over thirty years now, and is still going strong, will help you buy or sell pre loved amateur equipment, and Roy has a full complement of goodies for you this week.


    There’s a press release from the Radio Amateur Society of Australia concerning revisions to the Australian band plan.


    Unfortunately we also have a silent key announcement, with the passing of Bert, formerly VK6ME.
