Change of Venue for LARC Monthly Meetings

 

As part of our migration of the LARC Club Station and activities to the 427 Wing, 2155B Crumlin Road North
London, Ontario, we are making a couple of additional changes.

Starting September 7th 2017, the LARC monthly meetings will be at the 427 Wing.

This venue offers more space, better acoustics, presentation equipment and facilities. 

We will be better able to set up and demonstrate ham equipment with the proximity of the club station.

There is no time limit imposed on our presence.  We will be able to offer coffee and tea for a nominal donation.

Also the Ham Course offered annually starting again this September will be conducted at the Wing.

We are fortunate to have Hugh McCully, VE3AYR as our guest speaker. He will be speaking on the co-ordination of the Vimy special event in France.
