Gold Coast Amateur Radio Society (VK4WIG)

The Gold Coast Amateur Radio Society (Or GCARS as we call it) is the home of Amateur Radio on the Gold Coast. Our clubhouse has been around since the start of the 1980s and has seen many Amateur Radio operators come through its doors.

We welcome all members and guests to come along to any of our open days. Stop by and have a chat, get to know us and even have a play on one of our many radios plugged in and ready to use!
