Tas Maritime Radio

Tas Maritime Radio (formally known as Coast Radio Hobart) has expanded their service around Tasmania. The expanded services comes about by their commissioning of two new repeater aerials situated on mountains on Tasmania’s west coast. Tas Maritime Radio now has VHF radio coverage from Flinders Island in the states north east on down the east coast, round the south and now into the west coast of Tasmania. They have changed their name to reflect the increased coverage area.

They are a volunteer organisation dependant on subscriptions and donations to maintain their equipment and to also fund any improvements to their critically important service to seafarers. We encourage all our members to join and support this organisation.

Our friends at Tas Maritime Radio have continued to support and assist The Tuna Club of Tasmania Inc with radio relays during our competitions and also provide us with some technical advice on improvements and upgrades we have commissioned on our own base radio equipment.

The Tuna Club is extremely grateful for the assistance provided and have again this year made a donation to Tas Maritime Radio.

Thankyou Tas Maritime Radio.
