Western and Northern Districts Amateur Radio Club

WANDARC, (an acronym of Western And Northern Districts Amateur Radio Club), is an Amateur Radio Club that predominately serves the Western and Northern suburbs of the city of Melbourne, Australia.

Formally established in late 2015, the Club seeks to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere in which Members and others can share and enjoy all aspects of Amateur Radio.

If you are interested in Electronics, Computing and Radio you will find people here at the Club who are keen to share those interests with you.

The Club holds regular Meetings every second Friday Night as well as conducting Social Events and Field Days.  Check out our Calendar for these events.

We can assist you with training and sitting for the basic Foundation Licence.   We also hope to do the same for both the Standard and Advanced Licences in the near future.

Membership is open to all, you do not need an Amateur Radio Licence to join.

If you are on Facebook, please check out our page and you would be most welcome to join our group.

For those that have a licence, our Members can usually be found on our simplex chat frequency of 145.245MHz

or on our favourite 2m FM Repeater, VK3RML.   This repeater is accessed on 146.700MHz with a 600kHz negative shift on TX and a 91.5Hz CTCSS.   It is located up on top of the Ferny Creek Fire Tower in the Mount Dandenong Ranges.  You are quite welcome to jump on in and say G’day at any time.
