As part of the London Amateur Radio clubs centennial celebrations, we will be featuring interviews with a number of hams who have played significant roles in the club history.  In 2020, the club is unable to meet in our usual physical location due to Covid-19. We therefore held our meetings using the Zoom conference platform. Below are a list of features, interviews and topics that were held during the year and at these virtual meetings.

 

As part of our 100th anniversary celebration, we have been authorized to use the special events callsign VE3LON100. Any member of LARC can use this callsign for the month of September to make contacts on any mode. Please keep a log of the contacts you are making and we will be letting people know how we will be QSLing these contacts. We hope you enjoy using this special callsign. There is a QRZ.com page setup for the callsign. Members are encouraged to operate and log using http://www.n3fjp.com program. At a later date, we will be asking operators to forward their logs to the club so we may QSL the contacts made. Please note, if you are operating Self Spot on DXSumiit at http://www.dxsummit.fi to promote the event and to prevent mutiple people being on the same band at the same time.
