The September 2020 Rambler is now available!
I hope you had a great summer despite all the restrictions floating around. This has certainly been a different lifestyle compared to what we were used to.
Nevertheless, it is that time of year when we start thinking of colder days and with that, we have the return of the Pot Lid Net (PLN).
Make a note on your calendar, the PLN will begin its 47th season on September 13. Once again, the PLN will operate on 3.620 Mhz at 11 o’clock (Ottawa) local time. The net is open to anyone who enjoy Morse code, every Sunday except when there is a holiday.
The PLN’s Manager, Roger (VE3XRR) is also the regular Net Control Station (NCS).
Please join the group and chat with us while at the same time, practice your Morse code at a nice slow speed (approx. 8-12 wpm).
Looking forward to your participation.
Due to the risk of safe assembly during these unusual times, the Ottawa Valley Mobile Radio Club will not be offering the usual September start for their Amateur Radio Course. If circumstances change for the better, we may consider offering the course in January. In the meantime, the OVMRC recommends folks register for an on-line course being offered by Radio Amateurs of Canada.. See: https://www.rac.ca/rac-online-basic-amateur-radio-course-registration-summer-2020/ .. Also, for those interested in home study, a good on-line resource is offered by the Georgian Bay Amateur Radio Club : https://www.gbarc.ca/course_outline.php For candidates believing they are ready to write the Basic and/or Advanced level qualification exams, arrangements in the Ottawa area can be made with Norm, email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
