Serving K-W Radio Amateurs since 1922
It's that time of year! Most of you have already done so, but please renew your KWARC membership if you have not yet! Please look up your callsign in the purple "KWARC Roster" box above, your expiry date should be in the top-right. BY FAR the easiest way to renew is to send an interac e-transfer from your online bank/app 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), 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 hosting 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.

In response to requests from the membership, KWARC is also pleased to offer the KWARC Swap & Tech Net, held on the 4th Monday of each month, again on VE3RCK. 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.
... and don't forget our mailing address!
