The VE3AHW Memorial StationStarting some time back in the late 60s or early 70s, VE3AHW, A.H. "Sandy" Sanderson  got together with a bunch of his friends each evening at various spots in the 40 or 75 metre band. 

After several  years of everyone hunting for the frequency of the evening, Bill Atcheson VE3AUJ suggested that he would show up early on one frequency and hold it for the get together.  For one reason or another the frequency of 3762.5 kHz. was picked and has been in use every evening since.

Net founder and chairman Sandy Sanderson passed away February 18, 1988.  On his passing Bill VE3AUJ polled the group to see if they wished to continue and if so what should they call it.  Fred Warburton VE3KU suggested the "Sanderson Hour" which it has been known to this day.  The job of informal net controller was assumed  by Bill Atcheson VE3AUJ of Woodstock, Ontario who calls the gang together each night to solve the problems of the world.

The following series of photos will put a face to several of the group who you will hear most nights after 21:00 hrs eastern time.
