Topics for this week are final preparations for Comfest this Sunday and a presentation by Don VE7DS on his Vimy special events station. This is a second presentation for people that missed it south earlier in the year. Each presentation Don does is unique so even if you saw the first one there will be something different. As we have so many new members it’s also an opportunity for them to enjoy.

Don’t forget tell all your buddies about Comfest this Sunday.
