Portable Station Demo Saturday, September 13, 2014

As Members had clamoured for its return, we will once again offer the OARC Portable Station Demonstration where Ottawa area amateurs have the opportunity to show off their portable stations in a relaxed and pleasant setting. Scheduled for Saturday, September 13 between 10 am and noon in the Gazebo area of Britannia Park (we are back at our original site), 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 keyboardand add a "new one" to your list of contacts. Perhaps you have a portable station of your own and would like to gain significant prestige points andadmiration 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.Greg/VE3YTZ
