The Hervey Bay Amateur Radio Club members attempt to participate in many national and international, radio competitions and events, the club’s callsign is VK4CHB. Some club members actively chase ‘QSL cards’ and points by getting more contacts, others just enjoy talking to people, locally and across the world.
For those who want to, the club has a strong social theme. There are lunch and dinner get-togethers thorough the year, with a Christmas dinner usually at a Hervey Bay restaurant. We also meet up with the Bundaberg Amateur Radio Clubs most years at one of the towns mid-way for a BBQ and chat.
The club has run many ‘special event’ callsigns and awards which have attracted interest from all over the world. In 1991 we won a “Community Event of the Year” Australia Day Award for our efforts.
