Radio in the Park (formerly known as the Portable Station Demo) 2018 – Two Weeks Following Hamfest


Due to continued popular demand, Radio in the Park is back again this year. Since last year’s site was so well received, we are returning once again to the Walter Baker Park in Kanata. If you remember there are a lot of picnic tables around and plenty of nearby free parking and, most importantly, no geese. Amateurs who wish to show off their portable stations or to try operating portable are welcome to participate. Here are all the details:

Field Day 2018 - The OARC Way

With the month of June upon us, it’s time to start thinking about the annual OARC Field Day activity. For those who don’t know, Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada.  This year Field Day is on June 23 starting at 2 PM and ending on June 24 at 2 PM when more than 35,000 radio amateurs will gather with their clubs to operate under field conditions.
