Southern Electronics Group Mayanup Ham-Camption 13th & 14th May 2023
This year’s Mayanup Ham-Camption is on again on May 13th and 14th. Graham VK6MG went last year and wrote a report which was circulated to the Group by email on Sep 13th; his report and photos haven’t made it to the website yet…. but I’m sure Graham will sort that out :)
See below for the planning details, put the dates in your calendar and have a think about the possibilities. Perhaps another PARG group and/or PARG1 deployment?
From Darren VK6EK:
Good Morning Campers,
The Mayanup chapter of the Southern Electronics Group would like to invite hams and their wives, husbands, partners, offspring or just people interested in radio and camping to attend our second annual field event on the 13th and 14th of May 2023.
Mayanup Ham-Camption is an informal camp-out and radio get-away weekend where we can use and discuss practical projects for your radio and antennae in an open area with a welcoming fire pit, plenty of tall trees and great facilities.
Food, beverages and drinking water are all BYO. We will provide further details of take away options closer to the event.
The grounds are large with plenty of space for your caravan, tent or swag with some indoor shed room in case we get the odd shower or two.
If you choose to visit but would prefer a more civilised motel or bed and breakfast, there are many available from 10 to 30 minutes from Mayanup. There is limited power available on the grounds, so self contained power is preferred. There are toilets and showers, and camping will be $10pp/pn.
The event is focused on the weekend, but campers are welcome to arrive on the Friday afternoon or evening, but if you are planning to do this please let me know beforehand so we can unlock the gates.
Our event last year was a hoot, and we expect this year to be even better. The location is a leisurely 3 hours drive from Perth and two hours from Albany and Busselton.
This year we have extended the welcome to VKS737 and AusTravelNet members who are interested in radio.
