Event calender updated with the 2017 WICEN events.




 Welcome to the Wireless Institute Civil Emergency Network (WICEN) South Australia (SA) website.

Official website of The Wireless Institute Civil Emergency Network, South Australia Division.

WICEN operates as a separate identity under the auspices of the Wireless Institute of Australia.

WICEN is a group of volunteer Radio Amateurs who provide their time and equipment to other emergency groups to enable the transmission, via radio networks, of voice and data messages from mobile field bases to a central control.

Listed officially under the State Disaster Plan, WICEN provides radio communications and also co-operates with the State Emergency Service, The Salvation Army and The Red Cross and any other organisations requesting radio message handling assistance when emergencies arise.

The members of WICEN and other fellow Radio Amateurs have provided communications for a number of community events including Bicycles SA, Rally of SA., the Classic Adelaide Rally and assists Agencies with Emergency Recovery events.   Some of our events are used as field exercises and training forums to test our radio equipment and operating skills as WICEN radio operators.

Some WICEN members are also volunteering regularly within other emergency organisations (eg SES, CFS, VMR, St Johns, SAAS, etc),  thus WICEN_SA provides an indepth technical forum and training for radio operations to other Volunteer Agencies in South Australia

The members enjoy radio as a hobby, for the challenge, personal satisfaction and are life-long learners.  In summary, WICEN has the people, the skills and the equipment to provide radio communications to augment the efforts of the various civil emergency authorities following any serious natural disasters and provides communications for community organisations where safety is paramount.
