To provide safety for radio amateurs traveling long distances often in remote areas, or being marine mobile, Travellers Net is an Australian service available on the air 365 days of the year.
Anyone can also send a telephone message to the travelers or inquire about their whereabouts across the vast country.
A team of operators runs the Travellers Net on 14.116 MHz with a check-in at 0200 UTC, and for 21.185MHz it is 0400 UTC. Priority is always given to urgent traffic.
Sometimes the use of relay stations is necessary for those not heard by a net controller.
Each controller was recognised by a WIA Presidents Commendation at the WIA AGM Hahndorf in May in 2017.
