Our membership chair, Roger VA3EGY sent out a wonderful survey and many of you responded.
Friends, it has become more and more evident in the past month that life can no longer be considered business as usual. I take comfort in the belief that we will soon see the better days that lie ahead.
Jeffrey Arcand, VA3PEW will be our guest speaker at the January 2020 OARC meeting. He will be speaking on the subject of Organizing a Community Service Radio Event. Even though he is a relatively new Amateur, Jeffrey has become a key person organizing community events requiring amateur radio communications. These include, but are not limited to, CN Cycle, the Women’s March and the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour. Jeffrey’s outstanding contribution to the hobby has been recognized by the OARC - he is the 2018 winner of the Joe Norton Award.
