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 email@example.com
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 .
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.
Just a reminder that the May club meeting is tomorrow night 7PM at the Colchester EMO BLDG on Pictou Rd in Bible Hill.
Don’t forget about the Round Table tonight. It will be the last one until at least June 10th or maybe October 14th depending on how my schedule falls into place in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks to Ron VE1AIC for a couple of corrections to the presentation
- page 8 – Kenwood also sells a dstar radio
- page 14 – In our area 146.490, 146.550, and 146.580 are popular frequencies for Simplex use.
The presentation is now in a pdf, to make it easier for people to view.

Dave VE1HUL, during the first of his two presentations on the TARC Newbie Round Table. They were both well received with lots of good questions at the end of each presentation. There were 22 people who took in each of the presentations.
