Welcome to VK Tetra – the home of Amateur TETRA radio in Australia.

I’m Craig – VK2CJC. I built Australia’s first amateur radio Tetra gateway, and have since been working with fellow amateurs to expand the network of Tetra gateways and repeaters in Australia.

The VK Tetra network is an amateur radio network of linked Tetra gateways and repeaters. The network allows you to use commercial grade Tetra radios such as the Motorola MTH800, MTM800e or Sepura STP or SRG range of radios to talk to other armatures both here in Australia, and overseas.
