Central Highlands Amateur Radio Club

IRLP Node # 6037

P.O. Box 315


A small club started back in 1988 with the Amateurs from across the Central Highlands.

In 2018 we proudly celebrate our 30 Year anniversary with a keen supporting membership from across Queensland.

Proud to be the first club to link 3 voice repeaters in the early 90's and now with 7 voice repeaters linked across Central Queensland and also a fixed link to SEQ repeater near Ipswich, all with IRLP access on Node # 6037. Also setting up, the APRS Network for mobile coverage on 145.175 MHz across Central Queensland.
