ALARAmeet is a once in every three years event to meet other YLs of our organisation and other Amateur Radio Operators in person, having communicated over the airwaves for years.

Due to the on-going problems and uncertainties associated with the unprecedented CoronaVirus COVID-19 pandemic, it was decided that the 2021 (formerly the 2020) ALARAmeet in Bendigo should be cancelled.

ALARAmeet is now set for Hobart for Sat 4 and Sun 5 November 2023. We will start developing the program soon, but to do so we need to know how many of you are likely to attend. We have had an increase in younger members since our last ALARAmeet, with the introduction of the grant program, and hope that some of you can join us. Please let us know, so we can think of you as we develop the program. An Expressions of Interest form is part of the April ALARA newsletter, on the ALARA website ALARA or email We have secured good accommodation rates for the event at The Old Woolstore. They are the least expensive of all the venues we looked at and provide a variety of accommodation. Have a look at their website for more details The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel, Hobart Tasmania. We have special rates for the conference which are available on the Expressions of Interest form. Please indicate what kind of accommodation you prefer on the form. This is not a booking, just helping us to reserve a block of rooms at these competitive prices. If there are any particular things you would like us to consider for the program, please let us know. We are considering Salamanca Market, presentations by delegates on their interests in radio, a fox hunt with REAST, the local radio club, and a visit to the Female Factory for a taste of the convict experience for women. We are also looking at full day tour options for Monday for those who wish to stay on; Mount Field, Bruny Island, MONA. Please return the Expressions of Interest form to me at or P.O. Box 308, Rosny Park, Tas 7018 by 15 May 2022. Looking forward to welcoming you here in Tasmania next year.
