Perth Tech 2020 date announced

Saturday 2nd May 2020, at the Bassendean Community Centre
48 Old Perth Road, Bassendean

WA Amateur Radio News is pleased to announce that we will present PerthTech in 2020.

PerthTech is a One Day Seminar with a wide variety of subjects presented by experts in their field.

Following the success of last year’s event, where entry was free, the committee has decided once again to provide PerthTech as a free event, as a service to Amateur Radio in Western Australia.

We will again get together for an evening meal at the pub afterwards. Order and pay for your own food and drinks.

Of course we can’t produce an event of this quality out of thin air, so we will be raising funds via a raffle. We are still looking for a suitable prize, and as soon as prizes are determined, we will launch the raffle.

Meanwhile, mark your calendar and set aside Saturday 2nd May 2020 for a day you must not miss.

Even though the event is free, we will take bookings online for entry. There will be a fee for lunch, and payment for this will be online at trybooking as well. You don’t need to sign up at trybooking, and you can pay with a Visa, Mastercard or Amex card.

There will be an incentive offered for booking online to avoid having to deal with a queue at the door.

November WARG meeting – Working bee

Hello All! WARG’s next meeting is this coming Monday, November 4th. As per decision of the last meeting, the main activity will be a working bee, construction of repeater controller PCBs, VK6ZGN / VK6MT design. BYO soldering station, tools, etc, to join in the fun!

An extra folding table or two may also be useful, and/or bench mats, so we don’t drop solder or otherwise damage the surface of the venue’s existing tables.

The controller PCBs will be used in WARG’s newly-obtained Tait TB7100 repeater radios, as it offers more flexible operation than the radio’s inbuilt controller.

73, and Best Regards,
Anthony VK6AXB
Secretary, WARG.
