President's Message

Well, that tough winter and late spring that most of Canada experienced is mostly behind us at last. Enjoy and appreciate summer now if it is here or when it finally arrives at last!

I hope your antenna repairs or building has been successful and you will be on the air.

Propagation has been miserable when I have been on the air recently, but I am sure that it is worth checking and you never know what signals will get through - there can be some wonderful surprises. The CLARA nets shut down for the summer, of course, but it is still fun to listen for YLs and give them a call, as well as to listen out for the other YL nets.

I have the blessing of two springs! I visited my daughter in the Netherlands from late April till early May and watched the leaves come out, the cherry blossoms replaced by apple blossoms, lots of tulips, and so on. I arrived back to bare trees and daffodils and watched the leaves arrive and the tulips come out. The apple blossoms are arriveing just in time for the apple blossom festival.

However you spend your summer, I hope it is a good one, and please send us a report about it for the web page!

Till next time, 33,73
