Mackay Amateur Radio Association Inc.


P.O. Box 1065


The Mackay Amateur Radio Association INC. was founded in 1972 by local amateur radio operators, to better promote the hobby in the region.

Today, the club is still quite active, with around 30 members or so.

We are involved with many amateur radio activities throughout the year, which include participating in field days such as the John Moyle Memorial Contest, Jamboree on the Air (Jota) for Scouts, communications support for horse endurance trials and other various activities.
