    Here's the current roster.  Thanks to everyone who's signed up - lots of spots still available.

    Note the sign up for help with trailer set up, beginning at 8am on Saturday.  We'll need some folks to open it up and get it ready to go.  Typically, it takes a couple of hours to get everything ready.  There might be coffee and doughnuts...

    Amateur radio email, WinLink, is one of the modes for CARA's 2022 WFD.  Calgary's UHF access frequency is 431.0000 Mhz.  Or, use an HF frequency.  Register for a shift using WinLink.  Give your WinLink community out there advance notice as to when you will be on the air with your WL in the CARA comm trailer.
