About the HF Radio Club Inc.

”Safety First Friendship Always”


The HF Radio Club is a non-profit organisation supplying HF Radio communications services to all its members. The club has nine frequencies ranging through 3MHz and 16MHz.

Members are from every state of Australia, in motor homes, caravans, 4WDs, on stations and farms or are just radio buffs who enjoy talking to other Members. 

Many members are on the road constantly, so you can exchange greetings and news as you enjoy your own travels around Australia.

There is no better guarantee of safety if you need help, day or night.

The Club provides 24/7 HF Radio access, through its bases, to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

There are scheduled chat times (skeds) for our members. You can call up individual members, using the selective calling facility (Selcall), outside sked times.

The “Travellers Package” allows you to keep in contact with family and friends when local Telephone services are unavailable. Soon, together with the member’s page on the web, you will be able to show your family exactly where you are by sending your GPS position through one of our bases around Australia.

HF Radio Club get togethers in each state provide opportunities for renewing friendships, for technical advice, radio usage (including for the ladies), equipment installation advice as well as meeting new friends and putting a face to “the voice”.

We are a friendly club just wanting to communicate and make new friends.

Our motto:

”Safety First Friendship Always”
