Serving K-W Radio Amateurs since 1922
Our meetings are still being held on the first Tuesday of each month, 7:00PM, 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.
2021-03-02: We'll hear from Onno VK6FLAB, an Australian amateur who creates a weekly podcast called Foundations of Amateur Radio. Each episode is less than five minutes long, and explores one of the many facets of our hobby. In his presentation, Onno will talk about trying new things and getting out of your comfort zone to learn and do something new in the wide world of radio.
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.

A New Net is Starting Up sponsored by KWARC!
In response to requests from the membership, KWARC is pleased to be able to introduce a new Net that will be hosted on VE3RCK. The KWARC Swap & Tech Net will begin on Tuesday December 8th and will be 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.
Waterloo Marathon is once again cancelled in 2021. :-(
