Portable station Demo Saturday, September 15, 20

Back by popular demand is the portable station demo where Ottawa area amateurs have the opportunity to show off their portable stations in a relaxed and pleasant setting. Scheduled for Saturday, September 15 between 10 am and noon in the Gazebo area of Britannia Park, you are welcome to come out, admire the handiwork of other amateurs as they operate their portable stations. You are more than welcome to take the key, microphone or keyboard and add a "new one" to your list of contacts. Perhaps you have a portable station of your own and would like to gain prestige points and admiration of visitors and OARC Members alike. You are therefore more than welcome to grab one of the many picnic tables that are available and operate your own station. Set up will begin at 9 am. We hope to see you out.


With sadness we note that Russ Lowe, VE3LOW a well known member of the Ottawa Ham Radio community has passed away. His obituary.
