Roger Graves VE7VV – an excellent presentation

21 Mar


Thank you, Roger, for your excellent presentation – Operating on 630-metres. Why? and How? The WARA members (about 28) who attended thoroughly enjoyed the numerous slides and the facts which you had researched.

It was informative with the early history of wireless on the BC west coast both on land and on sea. Your technical presentation, which included data and SSTV transmissions to and from other BC radio amateurs in Vancouver, was superb.
