2017 YEAR of the YL Ham Radio Operator





I have just had a note from our tour director about our trip across the tarmac to the Air Traffic Control Center.

If there is any interest in anyone doing a VFR simulator, this will take about 2 hours. I just found out that this is where you learn to tell the airplanes where to land. All radio controlled

If anyone is interested (let’s say more than 3 people), please make sure you email me or phone me direct so that I can get a list made up and ready to give to the tour guide. She will need this information by July 3rd or 4th at the latest in order to get it set up.  My email and phone number on on the Contact Us page.

See you in July. 73 33 Val VE5ACJ

President's Message

June already!  Ladies, you have 1 week  to get your hotel reservations  as we have extended the deadline to June 9th. so send in your registrations for the CLARA's 50th Birthday Bash ASAP.  

Not much to say this time around.  Hopefully your registrations are in the mail. I realize that snail mail is slow, so please make sure you fill in the paperwork this weekend, and get them in the mail.

Most of my garden is planted, going to try to get all my annuals in this weekend, then I can spend the rest of the time packing and sorting everything that must go to Winnipeg.  

Margaret, AE7MB has started to make the quilt and I want to thank all those who sent in their squares.   We received 65.  The 2 quilts are going to be just beautiful.

That's all for now, take care, and stay healthy.
