Welcome to the WA Remote Amateur Repeater Network Info Centre

This site has been developed to keep you up to date with whats happening outside the Perth metro area in relation to amateur repeaters and amateur repeater projects being looked at or on the go.  Much effort is being channeled into the " city " repeaters that the country sometimes misses out.  We all know that there are plenty of amateur operators in rural and remote area's of WA.  As the populous grows within WA, so should the amateur repeater presence. 
This site is still under construction and will be updated as progress is made.
