NZART Branch 18 is Lower Hutt's Amateur Radio Club

We are Branch 18 of the New Zealand Association of Radio Transmitters (NZART) and our call-sign is ZL2HV.

Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need.

Find out more on how to become licensed on the NZART website.

JOTA, Huge thank you to Branch 18 for helping with JOTA JOTI this year. Especially Gavin, Ted, Robin, Dean, Christine, Chris and sorry if I haven't mentioned someone. We had 112 youth through which was very good really. 75 on Saturday and 40 on Sunday. Could not have done this event without your help. Thank you again. Marie.
