WAIKATO VHF GROUP .....
was founded on 16 June 1963 by 10 amateurs, to serve the VHF needs of amateur radio operators in the region. The Group has progressed from that time to the present with virtually the same objectives in mind. The Group has a very comprehensive net work of both VHF and UHF repeaters located at several strategic sites that cover a major portion of the North Island of New Zealand.
The objectives of the Group are: Amongst others;
1. To support the aims and objectives of the NZART
2. To foster local interest in Amateur Radio, particularly at VHF and higher frequencies
3. To establish and operate amateur transmitting and repeater stations
Without doubt these aims and objectives are more than adequately being catered for by this dedicated Group of Amateur Radio Operators.
Further details on the history of the Waikato VHF Group can be found here.
We welcome your further enquiry.

A visit was made to Te Uku on Wednesday 11th January to see why all the equipment appeared to be off the air. On arrival the first thing that was noticed was that the whole Icom shelf containing the '5675 repeater and the link equipment facing Te Weraiti was missing.
All is being done to find out what has happened to the equipment. In the meantime, Te Uku is completely off the air. That includes ALL radio equipment and the IRLP access. We do not have an estimate as to when Te Uku will be on air again, but it could be sometime.
