Please keep Joan VE5TAW in your thoughts and prayers.  She is in hospital and not really in the best of health at the moment.

Updated News about Poppy VK6YF

Elizabeth VE7YL received a letter dated July 1st saying that the Drs. are very pleased with her progress so no new tests until Sept. Friends have been taking her to some of the groups that she is interested in and she mentioned a geologist who gave a talk and showed pictures of Iceland. They have had record warm temperatures in W. Australia and this is their winter. Lawn sprinkling has been banned. (Sounds like Vancouver). She is not back to using her computer - she says they are both old and very slow! Will pass on news when I get more. Please keep your get well cards and notes moving across the Pacific to her

 Her address is:

Mrs Poppy Bradshaw, VK6YF
29A Wicks St
Eden Hill, WA

Here is another update Lois WB3EFQ

A quick note to let you know I am back home as of Wednesday. I still have a ways to go but I'll make it.

I don't have enough words to thank all of you for your cards,phone calls and mostly the prayers.  I am especially thankful for Judy Hale and Barb and Jim Gosnell for taking over with mother when I was so incapacitated.

I saw the neurologist today and he said I was doing good. This going to bed at 9 pm is getting to be a habit but my body needs the rest.

Thanks is just not adequate but I hope to be up to speed soon.

Love to all,

At times we have had a lot of QRM on our 20M CLARA Net, which runs Tuesdays at 1700.  So if you can't find us on 14.120, please turn your dial to 14.123.  I am sure you will hear us as you get closer.  


It has come to our attention that many folks who need to send in a change of address or articles to share and don't know where to send it. So please go to the Contact Us page, and you will find your area reps along with their email address. Please forgive us for this oversight, Also, under QSL & Contests, please find our Net Frequencies and time. Note that all our CLARA nets run from September to the end of May.

President's Message

Whoosh! Where did summer go? Seems like just yesterday I sent off the May note! I do hope that the new season will mean better propagation!

Field Day was miserable and so was Canada Day. The CLARA nets will open in September and it will be wonderful if we can hear each other.

Summer, of course, is the time to visit Nova Scotia and I had a lot of wonderful  visits. Not many of them were hams, so I have not been on the air much. We had hoped to get or beam down, tuned up and up again before the nets started but that didn't happen.

Please join us on 7055 on Tuesdays at 9 AM Eastern (13ØØ Z), 10 AM Atlantic  (14ØØ Z) if you are close enough to get on. Also look for us on 14.120 or near-by at 1700 zulu Tuesdays. Drop in your call, anyone who hears you will be happy to relay you in.

80 M eastern net has moved to 9 PM Eastern  (Ø1ØØ Z), (Ø2ØØ)10 PM Atlantic on 3750. Conditions are better then than they were at 7 PM Eastern. If you hear anyone, drop in your call and we will try to pick you up!

Please remember that all our nets start September 8, 2015
