The Central Highlands Amateur Radio Club was started back in 1988 with amateurs across the Central Highlands. The first face to face meeting was held on the 15th April 1989 in Clermont. In 2018 we proudly celebrated our 30 year anniversary with a keen supporting membership from across Queensland.

We are proud to be the first club to link 3 voice repeaters in the early 90’s and now with 10 voice repeaters linked across Central Queensland and also a fixed link to Ipswich, all with IRLP access on node #6037 (off line 2020) also getting up the APRS network for mobile coverage on 145.175 Mhz across Central Queensland.
