    Welcome to newsWest for Sunday 14th April 2019. This week we take a trip down memory lane, looking at what made Amateur Radio news way back when.


    As well as hearing about what happened several decades ago, you’ll hear about what’s coming up in VK6 Land in the near future. Yep you guessed it, this week we’re a veritable time machine.


    But there’s no time like the present, and today is HARGFest day, so if you hadn’t thought about going to HargFest, jump on your bike and make your way to Gladys Road, Lesmurdie, because that’s where the action is today.
