Friday evening, February 24th, 1967, saw the inaugural meeting of an enthusiastic group who met in the school rooms at Mooroolbark Technical School. On that evening approximately 50 future members of the organisation met and it was decided to name the group The Eastern and Mountain District Radio Club.
The club will hold a 50th Anniversary dinner to mark this momentous occasion. Friday 17th February 2017 at the Box Hill Golf Course (202 Station St, Box Hill South). For open 6:30pm, ticks are now all sold. Parking and access from the end of Riversdale road.
The club has also acquired the special event callsign VI50ER and we will be activating this through jan-feb and march 2017.
The club had a very successful VHF/UHF Spring field day portable over the past weekend. Thanks to everyone who worked our station. you can see a video of the site below, and the photos from the event on the club photo page
