    Information from VK2BV:
    The Waverley Amateur Radio Society is the oldest, continuously licenced, amateur radio club in Australia. It was founded on January 27th, 1919 in Waverley, in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.

    Today, the club is situated at Rose Bay, on the shores of beautiful Sydney Harbour, on the site of the historic Rose Bay Flying Boat Base. It is the local amateur radio club for the City of Sydney, the Eastern Suburbs and the Inner West. The Waverley Amateur Radio Society is a very active club catering for many aspects of amateur radio activities for its members, including electronics, shack nights, DX, contests, field days, the International Lighthouse and Lightships Weekend (Macquarie Lighthouse, Sydney Harbour; Hornby Lighthouse, Watsons Bay; Endeavour Lighthouse, Botany Bay), moon bounce and JOTA. The club has had the privilege of contacting both the Mir Space Station (x1 contact) and the International Space Station (x4 contacts).

    The club offers the opportunity for members and visitors to meet several times a month. These include regular monthly meetings for presentations, shack nights for radio operating, project days and weekly club working days. As the local club for the City of Sydney and the central business district, the club welcomes international visitors. The WARS weekly net is held on Monday nights 8pm local time on our 2m repeater 147.025 MHz + 91.5 Hz CTCSS.


    All logs are loaded to LOTW and eQSL (AG). Paper QSLs are welcome via the bureau. Direct QSLs should include a self addressed envelope and x1 IRC or x2USD, otherwise they will be returned via the bureau.
