Where would we be without our volunteers?


Our regular core of volunteer operators, radiocommunication experts and IT specialists keep Tas Maritime operating every day of the year. There are however times when we need assistance in other areas of expertise which we acknowledge below.

From time to time we need to call on tower climbers and antenna riggers – John Parker, Warren Arbuckle, Jason Gaitero, Maurice Riley and Steve Toth. Others who willingly assist with special projects include John Coles, Collin Squires, John Sullivan, Paul Askey-Doran, and John Goyen at Minty's Shetmetal. John Williams, (Chartered Accountant) and Michael Burnett from “Accru”, assist with ASIC and ACNC financial requirements. Peter Johnston Ship Chandlers kindly accepts annual service fees payments on our behalf and Dean Kearney from “Typeface” provides invaluable printing services. Other organizations that assist from time to time include Marine and Safety Tasmania, Telstra, TasNetworks, Parks and Wildlife and Tas Fire Service.

We at Tas Maritime Radio extend our thanks to all of these people and organisations without which we would not be where we are today.
