Darling Downs Radio Club Inc.


P.O. Box 3257


Our Club is one which is charged under the Constitution to disseminate knowledge in radio and electronics. We like to encourage inquiries to our hobby, and in our ranks you will find most facets of this hobby expressed. Some of these are modern computer influences in contest logging, vintage radio restoration, antennas, VHF and UHF operation, construction, crystal sets, valve operation and much, much more. If you are interested in it, you will find a kindred spirit in our Club.

You will also find interesting lectures by club members and non club members from time to time, as well as occasional outings to places of interest.


Our Club meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month, except for December when there is no 4th Monday meeting.

Second Monday is a Management Committee Meeting. All are welcome to attend.

Fourth Monday is a Social - Technical Meeting.
All are welcome to attend.

The Club meets at 7.00 pm local time in the Toowoomba Regional Library Meeting Rooms, Level 3, Cnr. Victoria & Herries Street, Toowoomba. Secure undercover parking is available with entrance off Victoria Street.

Everyone, including visitors, are welcome to all meetings.
