UKWA is a local radio station broadcasting on FM in the Clarkson/Mindarie/Kinross areas of Perth, Western Australia. It is primarily aimed at the UK expat community living in that area.

History[edit]

UKWA was set up in July 2014[1] by broadcaster Jonathan Morrell with the FM stations of 88FM Yanchep and 87.8FM in Burns Beach/Kinross areas.

In July 2015, 87.8FM in Burns Beach/Kinross areas was expanded to Mindarie, Jindalee, Clarkson, Butler, Quinns Rocks, Merriwa, Tamala Park and parts of Alkimos.

After the end of UKWA Yanchep's 88FM, it was replaced by Vision Christian Radio as at January 2016.

On the 23rd March 2018, the station started broadcasting on 87.6 FM to Butler, Jindalee, Alkimos and Eglinton.
