Round Table reminder

Just a reminder that the TARC Newbie Round Table will be back on the air tomorrow night (June 10, 2018) at 2100 hrs on a MAVCOM repeater near you.

Topics – antennas and summer lightning protection, basic repeater operation and of course we will field any questions that come up.

Talk to you tomorrow night.



Morse Code Training Course

Well the Morse Code training is over for the summer.

The participants have worked hard these last few months and while not good enough to be contesting, I will say we are a lot better than when we started. Summer is here, well almost, so we just need to make time to practice between all the other activities.

Morse Code Training will most likely be returning in the fall.

Scott MacNutt VE1CHL presentation

Scott has built a powered disconnect for disconnecting all his antenna cables and wires in the event of a lightning storm. After he has completed the install at his home location a simple push of a button will disconnect everything. Makes life much easier and safer when lightning storms are in the area.

DownEast Flea Market

From – Jeremy Fowler May 14, 2018

Greeting from HARC

This is a not so gentle reminder that the DownEast Flea Market is scheduled for the 26th of May

That’s 12 days from today .

As it stands now , table reservations are very low , and if people plan on selling , they need to book tables NOW ..

Tables can be booked thru Craig MacKinnon (VE1JMA) at

If the numbers don’t reach a decent level in the next week , we stand a chance of having to cancel the event for this year..

This years event was problematic because the gymnasium where we normally hold it is not available this year , due to the impending destruction of the building.

We had difficulty finding a new location that would suit us .

Further details regarding the times and location can be found on the HARC website.

Please spread the word as best you can.

Appreciate your cooperation .

VE1CHL to present info on his recent project at tomorrows club meeting

Hi everyone,

Scott, VE1CHL, is going to be bringing a project that he has recently
completed to the meeting tomorrow evening and will explain how he plans
to use it in his station.

I am sure that everyone will or should be interested in seeing this as
it might be just the thing for every amateur to have. Hope to see you
you at the meeting and try not to be late because Scott might be on
early in the meeting.


Bruce, VE1II
