Portable Station Demo Saturday, September 19, 2015

As OARC Members had clamoured for its return, we will again offer the OARC Portable Station Demonstration. Ottawa area amateurs will have the opportunity to operate and demonstrate their portable stations in a relaxed and pleasant setting.Scheduled for this Saturday, (September 19) between 10 am and noon in the Gazebo area of Andrew Haydon Park (we are back at our favourite site), you are welcome to come out and admire the handiwork of other amateurs as they operate and show off 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 are interested in amateur radio as a hobby, this can be your opportunity to gain the experience of getting on the air for the first time. You may have a portable station of your own and would like to gain significant 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.The location of Andrew Haydon Park can be found by going to this web site: Greg/VE3YTZ
