In the news this week we give you an update on the Peel Amateur Radio Group swap-meet, a run-down on repeater updates from the West Australian Repeater Group. Glynn has some news from the North Pole and WIA Director Andrew VK6AS shares his board report, recorded earlier in the week. Of course we have our regular segments too. Given the turmoil at the Wireless Institute of Australia, we have a run-down of the many behind the scenes activities associated with the board of the WIA, including offers of resignation and another call for a general meeting of the WIA. NewsWest is produced and presented by WA Amateur Radio News and opinions expressed in this news may not reflect the opinion of the news team, the broadcaster or the WIA and are shared in the open spirit of Amateur Radio.
