Presidents Message - November 15th

21 Nov 2019 7:18 PM | Stephane Raimbault (Administrator)

What a busy October! With the CARA Casino, CARA AGM, and Kananaskis Car Rally, it was a very busy month for many of us in the club.

A big thank you to all the volunteers that make these events successful. We received many updates from many groups and individuals during the AGM. It really shows how big and wide of a group we are and all the different activities that keep the club what it is.

I look forward to our regular November general meeting. Wilson VA6JWL has organized for a demonstration and discussion on home built VHF antennas. Feel free to bring any homebrew VHF antennas that you have built as there will be an analyzer available to test out antennas.

The Kananaskis rally was another successful events where we amateur radio operators provide a vital service of radio communication for the car rally. We employed our communications trailer that have been improved over the last couple of years. I had the pleasure to operate net control out of the communications trailer and I must say, the many upgrades over the years are certainly coming together. Everything from flooring, heating, power options, radios and mounting locations, antennas have allowed for a quick, efficient, and comfortable deployment. Congratulations and thank you to the communications trailer group who have worked tirelessly on this project.
