Introduction

Serving Amateur Radio in Western Australia since 1975, the WARG have established Repeaters on 29, 50, 144 and 432 MHz in WA for the use of all amateurs.

The design, construction, maintenance, financing and licensing of these repeaters is handled by the dedicated group members.

These repeaters are used for assistance in coverage for mobile, portable or geographically disadvantaged stations. Operators who can work each other without repeater assistance are encouraged to work simplex.

Metropolitan repeaters are also used in collaboration with the news broadcast, practice Morse and WICEN activities.

WARG has sponsored, designed and constructed several country repeaters which together with units built and maintained by country groups allow considerable portions of the State to have reliable VHF/UHF communication.
