SK Equipment Disposal

February 6th, 2018 by vk6ld

SEG has offered to assist with selling a number of items from the estate of Jim Atkins VK6JIM.

The majority of funds raised from the sale of the equipment will go to Jim’s widow and part proceeds to SEG.

Click on the photos for higher resolution images.  Most items have been tested for basic operation and it is noted in the description where the items are “unfinished projects”.  As you may appreciate, not being the owner of the equipment it is not always possible to know if there are any intermittent faults, where items have been repaired or other nuances.

If you are interested in any items, please contact SEG via the Contact Page.

2018 SEG Membership Renewals

February 1st, 2018 by vk6ld

We encourage everyone to join the Southern Electronics Group (SEG). Being a member is a great way to get started in the hobby, meet new friends and help out others. Licensed amateur, shortwave listeners and radio hobbyists alike are all welcome to join us.

Membership is only $30.00 per year and the membership year runs from 1 January to 31 December each year.

The group has invested considerably in the network of repeaters which we own and operate. These repeaters cost considerable time & money to licence, maintain and operate.  There is also the club callsign VK6SR, APRS digipeater & I-Gate and AllStar nodes.

Importantly, being a member of SEG helps us to share the cost of funding new projects, such as the proposed remote HF station as well as repair things when they break (like power supplies and antennas).  For members who joined part way through 2017, we can pro-rata your 2018 membership.  Donations are also very welcome, if club memberships aren’t your cup of tea!

SEG is able to accept membership renewals and new applications securely online via credit card & Paypal through the RegisterNow group.

For those who wish to pay by EFT/internet banking or by cheque, Membership Forms can be downloaded in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF formats below and sent via e-mail or by Australia Post to the Treasurer at PO Box 435 Mt Barker WA 6324.

Your ongoing support of SEG is greatly appreciated and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
