WARA 2018 Ham Grad Celebration

24 Apr

The WARA 2018 Ham Grad Celebration was a great success (42 attendees). We celebrated 16 newly minted radio amateurs who had excelled in their studies under the excellent tutelage of Andy Woodsworth VE7PT, David James VA7VK, and numerous other WARA instructors. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated team.

Many thanks to Richard Thompson VE7XT for his terrific presentation. His personal spin on our great hobby, his photographs of some amazing DXpeditions, and his numerous show and tell items (e.g., Morse keys) were a delight for both the old and new hams (and their guests).

Thanks also to Tom Heemskerk VE7ZTH for arranging the use of the room at the Royal Theatre and Glenn Lindsey VE7GRQ for managing the event and buying the pizzas.

We are close to the end of this year’s course.  Today we were making antennas, and Graeme looks very pleased with the results.  Many thanks to Donn VA7DH for machining a lot of plastic components, and to Ed VA7SDH for patiently giving glowing signal reports as we tried each new antenna on the air.
