OVMRC 50th ANNIVERSARY TRANSMITTER AND BUNNY HUNT

Saturday 17 November 2007 from 2PM to 4PM

Notice to all Hunters From Maurice Andre VE3VIG:

If you would like to test and calibrate your 80m DF antenna, come to the Science Museum parking grounds on Saturday Nov 10, 2007 from 10:00 AM till 4:00 PM.

I will be there with a transmitter on 3.760 MHz at the 1 watt level to help you do that. I will be available from 10am to 4pm. When no one is testing during that period I will be waiting for you at the VE3JW station inside the museum monitoring VE3TWO.
