VKS-737

FREQUENCIES / CHANNELS

If you have an HF radio with UPPER sideband capability that can access our channels, you can listen in any time to our staff and authorised users as we run our scheduled base station sessions (skeds). Authorised users may be heard on our channels too, in between the sked sessions.

Should you decide to join or seek more information, please see the Application Form or contact head office via the Contact page.

The channels below have been allocated to us* by the ACMA. Our sked sheets available to VKS-737 subscribers (via the Users tab) show accurate sked timings; we have both summer and winter sheets to accommodate daylight saving where applicable.

*shared with other users, to a minor extent

PLEASE NOTE

Authorised users are free to use all 7 channels for personal activity as long as they stay clear of published sked timeframes (and also stay clear of emergency traffic). See other sections of this site, and selected downloads from the Documents page, for more detailed information on frequencies and radio usage.
