Chris Allingham, VE3FU, will have the unique opportunity of making a presentation at the OARC's first virtual meeting. To be held in place of the normal gathering which would ordinarily have been held at City Hall on May 13, 2020, at 7:30 PM, Chris will share via Zoom and with OARC members in the comfort of their safe, COVID-free bubbles, his experiences in establishing a remote station at his father's home in Labrador City. Located in the rare Zone 2, Chris's station is always considered a very special contact in all the major world-wide contests, such as CQ WPX, ARRL International DX and others. With his father's home approximately 1,452 kilometres (18 hours by car) from Chris's home in Kemptville, we will learn how he overcame a great many obstacles to putting VO2AC on the air. OARC members will be guaranteed a fascinating presentation, confirming in their minds that their $25 annual membership is worth every penny as the OARC Executive continues to bring them, extraordinary speakers, despite the health emergency in their midst.
Details of how to join in the Zoom meeting has been sent to OARC members. Others can send an email to VA3EGY at gmail dot com to ask for this information.
Please mark May 13 at 7:30 PM on your calendars and join us in welcoming Chris to the OARC's first-ever virtual meeting.
