5 new Amateurs

Congratulations to the five new Amateurs who successfully passed their Basic Certification last night, May 1, 2019. All five not only got their Basic Certification they successfully earned their Basic with Honors.

The new Amateurs are:
Jennifer Waringer VE1JLW, Sarah Waringer VA1SAW, Kim Werkman VE1KJW, Jonathan McCarthy VA1JRM and in front Ben Shaw VE1BFS

VE1XK (146.790mhz) is back @ Hilden

Things have progressed enough at the revamped Hilden radio site that as of yesterday March 27, 2019 VE1XK is back up and running at that location. The Yaesu Fusion repeater is back up and running in both digital and analog. The repeater is connected to the internet so wires X is active and the VE1XK room 28329 is linked to the CQ Canada/VE1AO room 40678.

There is still some work to be done to get APRS and Packet up and running properly. That will happen in the near future.

Thanks to all who participated yesterday to make this happen.
