Members of the Geelong Amateur Radio Club participate in a number of radio events through out the year. These include field operations at museums, light houses, hill tops and pretty much anywhere a radio and antenna can be installed. These events are normally run over a weekend and give many amateur radio operators the chance to get on air and make contact with other operators around the country and the world.
Check our Syllabus Page and look for the RED links to find out when we’ll be on air.
