PerthTech 2021 is on 23rd October. 

PerthTech in Springtime

We’re pleased to be able to announce that PerthTech 2021 will be on Saturday 23rd October, in beautiful Gidgegannup in the Perth Hills. October is the middle of Spring, and the Hills are at their blooming best at this time.

There will be the usual line-up of interesting technical talks with presenters from around the country, trade displays and a chance to attend free practical workshops on Sunday, at venues to be advised.

The Gidgegannup Recreation Club is a modern facility in a lovely bush setting.  You can watch a large mob of kangaroos at sunset grazing on the football oval.

Our Gift To You

PerthTech is offered as a gift to Amateur Radio by WA Amateur Radio News.  The day will cost you $20, which will pay for lunch and a couple of other things.  The actual cost of staging the event is in the vicinity of $50 per head, most of which will be covered by fund raising activities.  More on fundraising a bit later.

We’re planning a sundowner after the day’s conferencing - the bar will be open, and you’ll need to bring $10 for the barbecue.  You can indicate that you’re interested in the sundowner when you book your PerthTech tickets.
