The VE3RCK club repeater is back on the air. The tech committee will leave it operational as is for now with a temp fix until a comparable part is sourced out that will operate with this repeater. Check back here for updates.
2022-07-05 meeting: Using Reverse Beacons - Pete N4ZR
Our meetings are still being held on the first Tuesday of each month, 19:00 for 19:30 (local), held jointly on VE3RCK and Zoom to partially replace the "face to face" aspect of our 250 Gage meetings, allow better presentation of slide materials, and allow new unlicensed members to join in.
2022-06-18 12:00 - 15:00 Eastern. An amateur organization in Pennsylvania will be holding an event to get kids on the air. You can help to provide contacts for the kids by working W8PRC on 7.195mHz and 14.245mHZ, or by connecting to Echolink node #146520.
KWARC will continue hosting a 2 meter net on club repeater VE3RCK each Tuesday evening starting at 19:00 to provide a opportunity for members to keep in touch. Come join us on VE3RCK repeater 146.865 -ve offset PL tone 131.8, And say hello for a evening of staying in touch with fellow KWARC members.
Various members will handle net control, but we are looking for
volunteers to also take up this opportunity. A fun way to learn how to
handle future nets!
Please email if you would like to volunteer to control a future net.

In response to requests from the membership, KWARC is also pleased to offer the KWARC Swap & Tech Net, held on the 4th Monday of each month, again on VE3RCK. Approximate starting time will be around 20:15. It will provide local Amateurs the opportunity to share:
The Net is open to all licensed Amateur Radio operators. Harry (VE3HZ) will be your Net Control station. We hope you are able to take the time and drop in - with or without traffic.
The KWARC Weekly Ragchew takes place on club repeater VE3RCK each Thursday evening from 19:00 to 20:30. This is not a net, and there is no net control, but club members are encouraged to call CQ during this time, just to see who answers.
