Beacons supported by WA VHF Group

The WA VHF Group supports several beacons in Western Australia, on frequencies VHF and above.


WA VHF Group has rationalised its support for beacons. Outside Perth and Kalgoorlie we no longer have the ability or funding to maintain beacons at a level required by licencing rules. From March 2024, the club will only operate:

    • VK6RPH (Wireless Hill: 50.46 MHz; 144.46 MHz; 432.46 MHz; 1.29646 GHz; 10.36846 GHz)
    • VK6RSP (Wireless Hill: 2.40346 GHz; 3.39846 GHz; 5.76046 GHz; 10.36846 GHz; 24.04846 GHz)
    • VK6RTU (Kalgoorlie: 50.468 MHz; 144.572 MHz; 432.572 MHz)

We have surrendered the following beacons:

    • VK6RBS (Dunsborough)
    • VK6RSW (Augusta)
    • VK6RST (Mt Barker), and
    • VK6RSX (Dampier).
