Introduction

First established in 1988 the Tablelands Radio and Electronics Club Inc. (TREC) is the leading club in Far North Queensland. TREC is located on the Atherton Tablelands - about 50km SW of Cairns, in beautiful Tropical Far North Queensland, Australia. Situated about 750m above sea level on the Atherton Tablelands (a volcanic plateau) the area provides a ideal place for radio operations. TREC members have an interest in amateur radio and electronics.

Foxhunts are conducted from time to time with great enthusiasm with our popular sausage sizzle afterwards. The club is also active in the VHF/UHF area of operations and regularly participates in field day contests.



TREC operates 2 repeater stations as well as the club station.

VK4RBK 439.900Mhz - 5Mhz shift at Bones Knob

VK4RHT 146.675 - 600 shift at Hann Tableland

VK4RHT 6 metre beacon on 50.281 CW QH23pc

The TREC club station callsign is VK4WAT.

XQA was the first amateur radio callsign issued in Queensland to Marcus Brims at Mareeba in 1914.
