Ham Radio raucous burns HF ears

Presenter: Vanessa Mills

HF Radio connects when modern technology fails.

HF, or High Frequency, radio has been a popular form of communication for travellers, truckies, farmers and amateur radio hams for decades.

It works when mobile or satellite phones can’t. Moreover, in remote areas HF is often the only method of communication.

But HF radio operators in the Kimberley have noticed an alarming increase in interference on the emergency RFDS channel.

Charles Gimbel has lived in Kununurra for 23 years and is a dedicated HF radio operator.

He’s often heard calls for help on the HF and acted as an intermediary between emergency services like the RDFS and police.
