Welcome to New WARA Hams

24 May

A warm congratulation to hams who obtained their Basic and/or upgraded to Advanced on completion of the WARA ham course.  If you hear our new graduates on the air, why not congratulate them yourself?

And thanks to Robin VE7DFI for the donation of an Icom V-80 and to Jennifer Verrall for the donation of a Wouxun handheld, which were won by two of the new hams during the graduation social event at the Lido Bistro, organized by Glenn VE7GRQ.

The ham class had even more fun on April 2 learning to make VHF ground plane antennas. There were big smiles when Ed Seedhouse, VA7SDH, gave our new hams great signal reports using their new creations.   Thanks to John Brent, VA7WPN for strong assistance and to Donn Hilton, VA7DH, for preparing the plastic components.
