Frequencies (channels)
If you have an HF radio with UPPER sideband capability, that can access our channels, you can listen in any time to our staff and authorised users as we run our scheduled base station sessions (skeds). Authorised users may be heard on our channels too, in between the sked sessions.

Should you decide to join or seek more information, please see the Application Form 01 on the Documents page or contact head office via the Contact page.

The channels at right have been allocated to us* by the ACMA; Our sked sheets available to VKS-737 subscribers (via the Users tab) show accurate sked timings; we have both summer and winter sheets to accommodate daylight saving where applicable.
