MONTHLY WIARC MEETINGS RESUME!
Good news ! The church has told us we are able to resume our use of the hall so we will have an informal meeting on the July 20 starting at 7:00pm. In accordance with COVID regulations we will implement social distancing and would also recommend that you wear a mask. For those of you that do not have a mask there will be supplies available. Don’t forget we always have flea market tables available, so bring any items you would like to sell.
DAN MONTPETIT VA2KEY – SK
It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing last Friday of our friend Dan. He was a mover and shaker in our club and hobby, an Elmer to some and an inspiration to all of us. Dan’s positive attitude, get-it-done initiative and sunny disposition will be greatly missed by all of us who were lucky to have known him. Deepest condolences to his wife Barbara and to his sons.
RAC ADVANCED AMATEUR RADIO COURSES – REGISTRATION OPEN
Announcement from RAC: In response to the global pandemic, Radio Amateurs of Canada is once again offering an online Advanced Qualification Amateur Radio Course so that individuals can upgrade their qualifications while continuing to practise social/physical distancing.
With your Advanced Certificate, you can run higher power, operate a remotely-controlled station, obtain operating privileges when travelling overseas, set up repeaters, be the trustee for club stations and even become an Accredited Examiner (AE).
In addition to the Advanced Course, a Basic Qualification Amateur Radio Course will also once again be conducted with the assistance of the Annapolis Valley Amateur Radio Club (AVARC) of Nova Scotia. We anticipate that the next Basic course will start in mid-August and are currently setting up the course.
