The APRIL Meeting was a lively one. In attendance were; VA3BDR, VA3PC, VE3YYB, VE3YO, VE3LOR, VE3YUI, VA3SPT, VE3XKB, VA3WAC, VA3JGH, Mike and myself.
1) Correspondance and there was a lot relating to events.
RAC and the Canadian Red Cross have renewed and updated their MOU. There don't appear to be any drastic changes.
As for events this year. Here is an abbreviated list. Check the NBARC Website for an expanded list and more detail. Paul VA3PC has been adding the events to the calendar.
I have upgraded the site to enable a photo gallery.
The "Image" link on the top bar will change to a Gallery link shortly,
and the image link will be relocated to the side menu.
The differentiation between the two will be that an item embedded into a story will be classed as an image, a photo will be a stand alone item within the gallery.
Clear as mud? - hopefully not when we all upload a few items.
It will be online later tonight.
The March meeting was well attended. In attendance were VA3PC, VA3DLJ, VA3BDR, VE3RRA, VE3XKB, VE3YYB, VA3NDJ, VA3SPT, VE3LOR, VA3JGH, VE3MAF and Mike Andrews a guest. Mike resides in the Bonfield area and is interested in obtaining his ham ticket. Welcome to the club Mike.
1) Correspondence: We have been contacted to assist with the MS Walkathon to be held in May 24th this year. Bill VA3SPT is getting more info. Watch the website http://ciinet.org/nbarc for more info as it becomes available.
Today I added a newsletter service, and moved the photo gallery to the header menu.
Please feel free to subscribe to the newsletter on the site. Drew has promised to remove you from his other distribution lists if you do.
I was at the Powassan site today and upgraded the repeater software and also set the time on the controller. Please let me know if the clock starts to drift again. I set it to adjust itself by 30 seconds a week. We'll see if it requires more or less to stay in sync.
We met at the base firehall for the monthly meeting. Just before the meeting started, we enjoyed some of Doug's slideshow offering from the previous meeting, and had a presentation of some of the show and tell items.
Doug had a listing of some portable/emergency antennas he was contemplating construction, and a 40m vertical antenna that he has built for portable use.
