The Alice Springs Amateur Radio Club, located in the red centre of Australia\\'s Northern Territory, is a group of keen “Ham Radio” operators who participate in most aspects of the great range of activities available in this hobby. In order for a radio amateur to obtain a “VK8” radio call sign, and transmit and receive radio signals from around the world, it is necessary to pass an examination recognized by the Wireless Institute of Australia. Our club is able to conduct these examinations for those interested in entering the fascinating world of radio communication, using their own radio, or one of those at our Club Station Base Station, VK8AR.
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, commencing at 19:30, in the Bellman Hangar at the Aviation Museum. The Museum is located 150 metres south of Larapinta Drive, on the west side of Memorial Avenue. Look for the three engined \\'Drover\\' RFDS aircraft mounted on a pedestal outside our meeting location.
