The Centenary of Organised Amateur Radio in Australia is very much an occasion for the entire amateur radio community, individual radio amateurs and clubs to join in and celebrate this milestone. The WIA has urged its affiliated clubs to develop and implement activities to promote amateur radio in their community. The activity must be one, that in the view of the WIA Centenary Committee, either promotes amateur radio, is of general interest to radio amateurs or is otherwise worthy of support.

The very latest WIA Supported Centenary Activity, is the Sunraysia Radio Group's participation at the Tri Annual Junction Rally, a major event featuring Vintage Engines, Paddle Boats, Steam Engines, Barges, Vintage machinery, Tractors, Bikes and Cars. The club also plans to provide a vintage radio display.

This major event will be held at the junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers in Wentworth New South Wales on Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th of July.

The previous WIA Support Centenary Activities were:
  The VK9NA VHF/UHF/Microwave DXpedition to Norfolk Island
  The Centre Victoria RadioFest Kyneton Victoria
  Radio, Astronomy and Electronics Expo, Bendigo
  The Re-enactment in June of the first wireless press message received from UK in Australia at Koo-Wee-Rup

Any club, group or individual seeking the WIA's support for an activity to be associated with the Centenary Celebrations should either write to the Centenary Committee, WIA at PO Box 2042, Bayswater, Victoria 3153, or email to
