The Brisbane VHF Group has been in existence since 1958 and was initially associated with the VK4 division of the WIA.

BVHFG Is a special interest group catering for amateurs interested in VHF, UHF and microwave operating and construction.

As one of the few positive effects of the Covid Pandemic and the subsequent adoption of remote participation in meetings, the group membership now extends across the entire region and into adjoining states.

Most members also belong to other "mainstream" radio clubs in their own area.

Monthly meetings are held on the FOURTH Wednesday each month and are conducted via a combination of face to face and remotely via "TEAMS". All are welcome to participate by contacting the secretary to be added to the invitation list.

Additionally, a "Teams" only chat session is being trialled on the SECOND Wednesday of each month.

The regular meetings and demonstrations cover all aspects of operation on the higher frequencies.

Regular Microwave Activity Days (MADs) are arranged to facilitate both home and portable operation.

The group regularly participates in VHF Field Days using the club callsign VK4IF/p and have been very successful over recent years.

The group operates an extensive beacon chain VK4RBB and VK4RTT covering all amateur bands from 50MHz to 24GHz

The group runs “Tune up days” where test bench instrumentation is arranged for evaluation and optimisation of home brew Equipment and systems.


The Group meets at the Chermside Library venue every fourth Wednesday of the month, from 7:30 pm except in December.

In addition, a TEAMS only (remote) chat session for members is held every 2nd Wednesday of each month from 7:30pm

Club Activities & Events

BVHFG maintains a comprehensive beacon system covering all VHF-uWave bands from 6m to 24GHz from two sites. Look for info on VK4RBB and VK4RTT. The entire chain is GPS locked and CW/digitally encoded (modes appropriate for each individual band).
