As we move into the upcoming year, I am excited to announce that we have many exciting things planned for our club. With various fun activities and events for amateur radio operators, we will have something for everyone. Here are some of the things our Executive committee is working on.
First, we have the Wednesday Night CW Club, which will take place at Station 50, and all are welcome. This evening activity is perfect for anyone looking to improve their skills and expand their knowledge of Morse code. We will hold a Parks on the Air activation this April at the 1936 Moose River Mine Disaster site. Moving on to May, we have the Down East Flea Market. This event will allow members to find great deals on equipment, accessories and other items related to amateur radio. In June, we will participate in the ARRL Field Day, a 24-hour event to demonstrate our emergency communication capabilities and show our operating skills. In July, we will have an Island on the Air event to activate an island off Nova Scotia. This event will provide a unique opportunity to visit an isolated island off the coast of Nova Scotia. Finally, we will participate in the Jamboree on the Air with Scouts Canada in October. This is an excellent opportunity to get young people involved in amateur radio and introduce them to the joys of our hobby. I want to remind everyone that our club events are made possible through our volunteers’ hard work and dedication.
We welcome and encourage all members to get involved in the planning and execution of these exciting events. Working together as a group can achieve great things in amateur radio and create memorable experiences for everyone involved. So let’s roll up our sleeves, have some fun, and make the most of our time together as a club. Thank you for being a part of the Halifax Amateur Radio Club, and I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events. As you can see, we have a busy and exciting year ahead!
