Editor of AR Magazine to be replaced

Date : 27 / 06 / 2019
Author : Peter Clee - VK8ZZ


It is with regret that, following a lengthy deliberation, the board has voted to remove Peter Freeman (VK3PF) as the editor of AR Magazine effective immediately.

The circumstances that surround this decision are reflective of the challenge that has been highlighted several times at the AGM and subsequently regarding the need for the behaviour of the WIA and its volunteers to change to meet the challenges presented by the world in which we find ourselves.

Dr Harry Edgar (VK6YBZ) has been appointed “Editor in Chief” in a new role that will be an annually appointed board position no different to that of President and Vice President.

Harry will announce in due course the forward looking strategy for making AR Magazine the best Amateur Radio and Electronics journal in Australia.

In the meantime the board is working to receive handover from Peter and to ensure the delivery of the next issue of AR Magazine to our members in a timely manner.

The board would like to thank Peter for his contribution to the WIA and to the hobby of amateur radio over the past 10 years and wish him well in the future.
