2017 Bridgetown Hamfeast

August 23rd, 2017 by vk6ld

2017 Bridgetown Hamfeast

The time has come around quickly again for the next Hamfeast.  Unfortunately due to a devastating fire recently at our usual venue at the Quinninup Tavern, we have had to find a new location, which we’re hoping will be equal to the Quinninup.

The new Hamfeast venue is The Cidery in Bridgetown and will be held on Tuesday 26 September 2017.

Start time is 11.00am.

For those who haven’t been before, the Bridgetown Hamfeast is similar to the almost famous Katanning Hamfeast Lunch, where the food is great, drinks are cold and the company is excellent!  YL’s, XYL’s & partners are also very welcome.

The Cidery is located at 43 Gifford Road, Bridgetown, which can be found on the road heading out of Bridgetown towards Boyup Brook.

For those coming from Albany, Mt Barker, Katanning, Perth or most other places, Bridgetown can be reached in 2-3 hours travel time.  For those that wish to stay a bit longer, there is accommodation in Bridgetown or nearby Manjimup, Pemberton and Donnybrook.

It is preferred if you can pre-order your choices to help the chef to have sufficient supplies on hand and prepare & deliver the meals in a timely manner. Meals can be selected on the day, but there are no guarantees! ?

The menu is available on The Cidery website – http://www.thecidery.com.au/menu/

If those attending can e-mail me with their meal choices and to confirm their attendance, so I can prepare a spreadsheet for the chef and our name badge producer.

Please have your orders back to me by 12.00pm, Wednesday 20 September 2017 at the latest.

Thanks all and look forward to hearing from you soon and seeing you at Bridgetown on 26 September 2017.

2017 SEG Membership Renewals

December 24th, 2016 by vk6ld

2017 SEG Membership Renewals

We encourage everyone to join the Southern Electronics Group. 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.

SEG has invested considerably in the network of repeaters, AllStar nodes, APRS digipeaters & APRS I-Gate. These are costly to licence, maintain and operate, not just in financial terms, but also time.  SEG also holds the club callsign VK6SR.

In 2017, SEG are planning to refurbish the 2M repeater antennas and install a web based IP switch to control/reboot 12V DC power at Mt Barker and linking the Albany 70cm repeater into the AllStar VK6 south west network.  We are also looking into the possibility of an amateur repeater in the Denmark area, with a connection into the AllStar VK6 south west network & 2M APRS digipeater.

Importantly, being a member of SEG helps us to share the cost of funding these services, establishing new projects as well as repairing things when they break (like power supplies and antennas).  Donations to SEG are also always very welcome.

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

To foster on air activity on our local repeaters and AllStar nodes, SEG will also be offering pre-programmed Baofeng BF-888 70cm handhelds to members in 2017 (new & rejoining) for the subsidised price of $10.00 each, limited to one per membership. The handhelds will be pre-programmed to all local 70cm repeaters and simplex frequencies.

In 2017, SEG will again be able to accept membership renewals and new applications securely online via credit card & Paypal through the RegisterNow group.  If you also wish to purchase a 70cm handheld, this can be added to your membership renewal in the RegisterNow checkout process.

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 at the bottom of this page and sent via e-mail, by Australia Post to the Treasurer at the PO Box or in person at the next SEG Ham Feast.

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

2016 SEG Membership Renewals

We encourage everyone to join the Southern Electronics Group. 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 are expensive to licence, maintain and operate, not only in money but also time.  There is also the club callsign VK6SR, APRS digipeater and I-Gate.

In 2016 SEG is planning the rollout All Star linking between the repeaters at Manjimup and Mount Barker with the existing All Star system at Katanning.  There are also discussions under way with the Bunbury Radio Club to join in with our All Star linking as both clubs share many common interests (and members!).

SEG are also making progress towards putting in a new 70cm repeater at Albany in 2016 which will cover town and surrounds with linking to Mount Barker and the All Star network.

Importantly, being a member of SEG helps us to share the cost of funding these new projects as well as repair things when they break (like power supplies and antennas).  For members who joined part way through 2015, we can pro-rata your 2016 membership.  Donations are also very welcome.

In 2016 SEG will be able to accept membership renewals and new applications securely online via credit card & Paypal for the first time through the RegisterNow group.. (Below)

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, by Australia Post to the Treasurer at the PO Box or in person at the next SEG Ham Feast.  Please contact SEG for the online links to online pro-rata membership renewal and donations.  (See Contact Page for details)
