ABC Radio Capricornia 873 kHz in Queensland broadcast an interview on September 23, with Clive Sait VK4ACC, Secretary of the Rockhampton and District Amateur Radio Club. The interviewer Lisa Clarke in her regular segment 'Portraits: In the club' named this particular session 'On the same wavelength'.

In a five minute talk Clive told of the scope and potential of Amateur Radio, and what attracted him to the hobby. On getting his licence decades ago, he immediately sought to contact 100 different countries. He described how with a bit of experience, the worldwide pursuit allows the use of home built equipment, although commercially made gear dominates the activity these days. The ABC program listeners also heard Clive talk about direct contracts with space travellers, and portable operation, such as at the Old Sea Hill structure during the International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend in August.
