The club was founded as an interest group in the 70's, focused on what was then the CB craze before its formal introduction to Australia. Naturally this led to Amateur Radio and as our club membership grew, most members attained an Amateur callsign via classes given at Mt Gravatt TAFE .

Our members quickly found an interest in Field Day events, winning outright the John Moyle Memorial Field Day Contest from a site at Mt Wolvi (near Gympie) and also winning the VHF/UHF section twice.

As interest in Field Days has increased in the last few years, our club has built an extensive trailer-based field day station, with power supply, radios, amplifiers and antennas covering bands from 6 metres to 10 GHz. Many of our trips away have taken place at hills around 200-1200 metres elevation, selected so as to cover more of our great state and beyond on the bands above HF.

In 2023 we entered all three field day contest featuring VHF and higher bands. We are looking forward to keeping up this momentum.

Our club has had many past projects, including building 2m and 70cm 300-400 Watt Larcan/NEC amplifiers. Also other projects building 1.2, 2.4 and 5.8 GHz transverters. Our latest project we have built as group is a PTT Extender for the IC9700. You may like to peruse our website for further information on all our activities.


Our Club meets at Mt. Gravatt TAFE every second Tuesday of the Month except December/January @ Block B Level 3 Room 3.16.

Most other Tuesday's we connect initially on our 2m repeater then meet virtually via Microsoft Teams - see our website for the link. We look forward to meeting you.

Our AGM is held in conjunction with our March meeting with annual fees due at that time.
