This Saturday, Oct 18/2014, We will be participating in Scouts on the Air (JOTA) With the 7th Prescott Cub Pack who will be having their fall camp at Camp Sheldrick located at 12489 Webb Road off of Nesbitt Rd. off of Hwy 31 which is south of Winchester. This is their first time participating in the event.

Steve, VE3AVP will be setting up a digital station, and I am setting up a voice station. We are planing to arrive there at noon.

If anyone wants to come by for a couple of hours Saturday afternoon, let me know so I can send you the Scouts Canada visitor forms.

FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate's Keynote Speech at ARRL

I'm a ham because it's fun... but there are other reasons! This video from the ARRL is FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate's Keynote Speech. He got me early with this tidbit:

“As technology improved, government began to see amateur radio less and less as a viable part of emergency communications... until it breaks”

This guy loves radio!

VA3ES Silent Key

It is with great regret that we announce that a great friend of 3730/VE3ORF, VA3ES, Edward (Ed) Seib passed away early this morning. Ed, you will be sorely missed at the nearly nightly get togethers. We won't be able to enjoy a pizza without thinking "Montreal Style" in your honour. We knew you as the "Old Man", but you had the spirit of a teenager. You were a wealth of knowledge, and we learned much from you, and not just radio knowledge. Your sense of humour will be missed forever. See you on the other side, brother, friend, family.
