2021 SEG Club Membership Renewals

December 25th, 2020 by vk6ld

Wow, what a year 2020 has been and after everything that has happened, I can’t believe we have made it to the end of the year. Here’s hoping 2021 is a better year for us all!

2020 saw a number of new & upgraded 2M & 70cm Allstar nodes added to the VK6 South West Hub linked repeater network, as we kept busy during the lockdowns. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 travel & mass gathering restrictions, we had to cancel the Katanning Ham Feast in April. Luckily these restrictions had eased by November and the Manjimup Ham Feast went ahead at the Quinninup Tavern and was probably the largest Ham Feast the club has ever held.

In 2020, SEG had 35 financial members in the club.

With the start of a new year, comes Southern Electronics Group (SEG) membership renewals. Everyone is encouraged to join SEG and 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 remains at $30.00 per year and the membership year runs from 1 January to 31 December each year.

SEG continues to invest and upgraded its network of repeaters, Allstar links and nodes, the RemoteHams internet-controlled HF/VHF/UHF club station, APRS digipeater & I-Gate services and club callsign VK6SR.

For 2021, we have started assembling and building a second RemoteHams internet-controlled HF/VHF/UHF club station to be installed for members at Carnarvon. This is no small exercise, but it will give exciting chances for contacts that aren’t always possible from the south-west of VK6.

These projects all cost considerable time & money to licence, maintain, upgrade and operate. Importantly being a member of SEG helps us to share the cost of funding new projects and repairs.  For members who joined part way through 2020, we can pro-rata your 2021 membership.  (Please ask to have your membership adjusted.)

Now if club memberships aren’t your cup of tea, SEG are also able to accept donations.

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

The link to the 2021 Membership renewals is:

The RegisterNow system will automatically email you a receipt and deposit the funds to the SEG account. 

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.
