The Home of VK4BAD

Welcome to the official website of the Bunya Mountains & District Amateur Radio Club!

Based in the township of Dalby QLD, we have roughly 20 Members from the Western Downs, Darling Downs and South Burnett regions.
We currently operate 2 Amateur Repeaters on the Bunya Mountains, which provide unsurpassed coverage to our local area.
We have plans to install a Linked Repeater System by early 2024.
Repeater Information can be found under the Activities tab.

The hobby of Amateur Radio has a long and proud tradition. The very first radio amateurs were true pioneers of radio technology. Amateurs 'invented' and refined much of the early radio technology and were the first to transmit music, radio plays, and information to the handful of people who had the new fangled radio receivers.

After World War II the hobby of amateur radio flourished. Radio clubs sprang up in schools all over the world and kids went home each night to build some new contraption, or have a chat with someone over the wireless. These young people became the mainstay of the technical professions and developed much of the modern technology we use today.
