RAST holds informal meetings on the first Sunday of each month at the N-Siri Resort
. All members and any visiting radio hams are welcome to attend and the meetings begin at 11 a.m. and at around 12.30 p.m. a buffet lunch is available. The N-Siri Resort is also the new location of the RAST HS0AC club station.
The resort is located in the northern suburbs of Bangkok and is 500 metres inside Soi 71 on Lumlukka Road.
We recommend driving there or taking a public taxi and there are two routes to N-Siri Resort that can be taken from Bangkok, as follows:
The eastern route:
. Head north on the Kanchanapisek eastern outer ring road. You can access this highway best from central Bangkok by taking the Chalong Rat expressway that links Sukhumvit Soi 50 with the ring road and this expressway joins Kanchanapisek about two kilometres before the Lumlukka Road exit. (Alternatively, you can take the Motorway that begins at the end of Rama 9 Road towards Suvarnabhumi Airport and then turn left to head north at the intersection with the Kanchanapisek ring road.)
Exit Kanchanapisek into Lumlukka road (route 3312) and head west in the direction of Don Meuang Airport/Phaholyothin Road. Proceed for 1.3 kilometres and make the first U-turn and drive back towards the ring road for around 275 metres. When you reach Soi 71 (next to a pedestrian overpass) turn left -- there are signs for N-Siri Resort and the Tanyatanee golf course at the entrance to this soi. N-Siri Resort is 500 metres from the main road on your left.
The western route:
Lumlukka Road begins at an intersection with Phaholyothin Road just to the north of Don Meuang Airport. If travelling north from Bangkok on Vibhavadi Rangsit Highway, at the Anussorn Satarn (National Memorial) intersection where Phaholyothin Road joins Vibhavadi Rangsit, bear left and take the flyover that loops back to Phaholyothin Road (in-bound) and after 300 metres on Phaholyothin turn left into Lumlukka Road. (Or, if travelling northbound up Phaholyothin Road, at the Phaholyothin-Vivhavadi Rangsit intersection keep left and make a U-turn under the flyover. Head south for 400 metres on Phaholyothin and then turn left into Lumlukka Road - Route 3312). Proceed for another 10 km along Lumlukka Road and then turn left into Soi 71. The N-Siri Resort is 500 metres from the main road on your left.
