Tilt-over Mast Presentation

Our next meeting is at South Delta Recreation Centre starting at 1900 on Thursday.

This will be a presentation to celebrate the start of the antenna installation season. Dave VE7HR will tell you all about the design, fabrication and installation of his tilt-over mast. Come out and see never seen before in public video footage. Bring your hip waders and dinghies to fully enjoy the event. 

Hope to see everyone out this week.

This week we are North Delta

Meeting starts at 19:00 but be there by 18:45 as the North Delta Public Safety Building locks down at 19:00.

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.

Registrations for our Basic Amateur Radio Course are open. Classes are Wednesdays and Saturdays starting November 15th ending with exam on December 9th. Course will be held at both Harris Barn in Ladner and NDPSB. Tell all your friends and spouses as course is always popular.

Look forward to seeing everyone this week.

In Memory of Doug Barry (VE7WFL)


Doug Barry VE7WLF

Doug passed away suddenly in hospital after surgery. His loving wife Irene was at his side. He is also survived by his sons James (Sheila) and Grant (Christine), his stepdaughter Jeassea and grandchildren Makayla, Victoria, Kate and Zack as well as five stepgrandchildren. A career Air Traffic Controller, photographer, and tireless community volunteer, Doug leaves us with a legacy of gentlemanly grace, courtesy and wisdom that is rarely seen.

The family wishes to express gratitude to all who knew and loved Doug, and for all your kind expressions of sympathy. If you wish to honour his memory, in lieu of flowers, please consider donations to O.W.L. (owlcanada.org), BC SPCA (spca.bc.ca), Nature Canada (naturecanada.ca), or volunteer some of your time to a community event or organization.
