NewsWest for 17th March 2019, New Hams edition.
NewsWest is the news programme by, for and about Radio Amateurs.
This week’s theme is focussed on new hams and apart from the usual announcements and regular series we have two interviews letting you how two well known amateurs got started and have progressed in the hobby.
There is news from and about the Australian maritime College, a band plan update, news on upcoming events and an item on interference that has been in the national press.
