2022 Katanning Ham Feast Report

July 3rd, 2022 by vk6ld

The Katanning Hamfeast was held at the Royal Exchange Hotel on Monday 20 June 2022.

We had a gathering of about 40 amateurs & partners attending for a day of good food, cold drinks and warm conversations.

People come from as far and wide as Albany, Mt Barker, Broomehill, Manjimup, Boyup Brook, Bunbury, Esperance, Mandurah, Perth Metro, Perth Hills, Esperance,  Katanning and all points in between.

The weather was a bit on the cold and wintery side, but the log fire attracted a gathering in keeping attendees warm.  

The Hamfeast raffle was also very popular fundraising for Southern Electronics Group and prizes went to the following:

VK6WX Wes won 1st prize, which was temperature controlled soldering station.  Other prizes were won by VK6FAAZ David, VK6JDM Donald, VK6GX Phil, VK6APK Alek and VK6POP Bob.

A large collection of AR related books and some 450 ohm ladder line was donated by VK6XT Rick.  These were auctioned off by Nigel VK6NI and fundraised some more for SEG.

Many thanks to VK6VET Warren and VK6XT Rick for the donation of items for the raffle and auction and to our auctioneer Nigel VK6NI.

The conversation continued into the afternoon, exchanging stories, equipment & ideas. 

Many thanks to everyone who attended and made the day a success.  

The next SEG events are a overnight, amateur radio camp out being planned for September 2022 at Mayanup (Boyup Brook) for caravanners, campers & tents  and the next Hamfeast is scheduled for November 2022 at Manjimup (Quinninup).  Details for both events will be posted closer to the time.
