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.
