FD 2011

Field Day 2011 is over. Our club operates Field Day at the Keystone Centre in Shedden, ON, a big open field with an open shed structure on the side of the field. We operated 3A this year, and ran at QRP power levels. The contacts were tough to come by but not withstanding the frustrations of rigs not working, we did have fun and look forward to next year. Field Day 2011 pictures are on the Gallery page.

Our club is not the only one in Ontario to operate Field Day as a QRP station, for a report on the Ottawa Valley QRP club at Field Day 2011, check this link.


myFM 94.1


There is a new FM station in St Thomas, myFM 94.1 started broadcasting a short time ago. The new station does give you local news and information for our local community. I wish them well as they embark on a new journey here in St Thomas and I am sure that I will check out their programming and signal quite often. myFM 94.1 is part of a network of radio stations in some of the smaller towns in Ontario, like Strathroy and Kincardine. Check them out, you may like them.
