Al VA3TET’s callsign transferred to ERC

The Elmira Radio Club now has an extra callsign for use on it’s repeaters: VA3TET. Al Macdonald’s family kindly released his callsign, and the Club has now acquired it, sponsored by President Ted VE3TRQ. “Victor Alpha Three Tasty Edible Turnips” will still be heard.

The Lighthouse Weekend is History!

The weather for the ILLW was almost perfect – a bit of rain Saturday evening, but mostly the weather was very cooperative. The burgers and onions cooked by Paul VA3PDC and Brian VA3DXK were appreciated by all, and Boston Pizza in Kincardine served up some fine meals Saturday evening.
