The Northern Corridor Radio Group is holding the annual ‘Hamfest’ on Sunday 20th August 2023.

Raffle Information will be posted here.

We would be delighted if you could attend the Hamfest and demonstrate your equipment or sell whatever amateur radio equipment you may have as surplus. Last year all tables were taken so please let me know if you would like one allocated. There is no charge for the table, just an entrance fee of only $5 for every person – NCRG members included.

The location of Hamfest is the Cyril Jackson Community Hall in Bassendean, 8 kms from the City Centre, in a large air conditioned hall with ample space for several hundred people and supplier stands.

Hamfest starts at 9:00 am and the finish is around 12:00 pm. Suppliers can set up from 7:30am.
We expect the Hamfest to be very well attended this year now that the borders are open and restrictions unlikely.

You are welcome to visit the NCRG club premises at Whiteman Park where we have an impressive array of amateur radio equipment and antennas.

We would welcome any request for special arrangements that you may require and will try to accommodate stall holder requirements when we plan this year’s event, should your company attend. Even if you are just considering attending or would just like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Brad Peters, VK6BAP and I will direct your enquiry to the appropriate Hamfest section leader.

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you here in Perth.
