Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Run-Off-the-Grid is this Saturday, Sept 29, 2018.

Please bring a lunch as this has been difficult in the past
logistically. Dinner will be served at the start/finish. It is catered
by gd2go , and is always very, very good!

Please dress appropriately for the forecast weather (cool, chance of rain). Also, our hosts have encouraged an extremely environmental event and as such request that we bring our own mess kits for dinner. Plate, bowl, cup and utensils please :)

Signed up are:


Currently the plan is as follows:

0700’ish - Meet at Tim's on Seymour
0715’ish - Depart for Nature’s Harmony
0815 - Arrival at Nature's harmony
0830 - Disperse to checkpoints to setup
0900 - First runners start


We are going to try crossbanding between the start finish and all other stations this year.

146.550 VHF operators at all checkpoints
445.550 UHF operators at Start finish

Please be perpared to operate on either frequency if possible.

147.150 (+) VE3NBR Repeater for Mattawa area portion of travel to and from
147.030 (+) VE3ERX Repeater for North Bay area portion of travel to and from

This is a really fun event and a great chance to exercise your radio equipment.
