Serving K-W Radio Amateurs since 1922
October meeting (2021-10-05):
Vic VE3YT will present / chair a Contesting Panel.
Patrick VA3PAF presiding over any other business.
It's September! It's time to renew your KWARC membership if you have not already done so! Please look up your callsign in the purple "KWARC Roster" box above, your expiry date should be in the top-right (unless you have asked to not be listed). BY FAR the easiest way to renew is to send an interac e-transfer from your online bank to our treasurer noting your name and callsign. If you would prefer to post a cheque, please see the renewal link above.
Our meetings are still being held on the first Tuesday of each month, 7:00PM for 7:30PM (local time), via VE3RCK and Zoom.
Once a month these will be held jointly on VE3RCK and Zoom to partially replace the "face to face" aspect of our 250 Gage meetings, allow better presentation of slide materials, and allow new unlicensed members to join in.
KWARC will continue having a 2 meter net on club repeater VE3RCK each Tuesday evening starting at 7.00 PM to provide a opportunity for members to keep in touch. Come join us on VE3RCK repeater 146.865 - offset PL tone 131.8. And say hello for a evening of staying in touch with fellow KWARC members.
Various members will handle net control, but we are looking for
volunteers to also take up this opportunity. A fun way to learn how to
handle future nets!
Please email if you would like to volunteer to control a future net.
"Health-Can and WHO-endorsed social distancing. KWARC-endorsed distance socialising"
In response to requests from the membership, KWARC is also pleased to offer the KWARC Swap & Tech Net, which will begin on Tuesday held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month after the regular KWARC Tuesday Night Net. Approximate starting time will be around 8:15pm. It will provide local Amateurs the opportunity to share:
The Net is open to all licensed Amateur Radio operators. Harry (VE3HZ) will be your Net Control station. We hope you are able to take the time and drop in - with or without traffic.
