Special Event Notice #1
The London Amateur Radio Club will be operating a special event and call for
National EMS Week (VB3EMS).
May 15 to May 21, 2022
Bands 80-10M - SSB, CW and Digital.
A note from the event coordinator: Dave Lambert - VE3KGK
I am looking for operators to fill two-hour time slots during those dates. The operation will mostly be 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. but for the night owls who wish to operate overnight, that is acceptable but I would like to schedule such operators so we know who might be using the call at night..
I will close the window for applications at midnight local time on May 12th. What that means is that those who apply after that time will still be able to be on the schedule, but they may not get the time slots they wish, although time slots will be available on a first come first served basis.
The early bird catches the worm and the early worm gets eaten.
It would help me with scheduling to get some names before May 3rd.
I need band preference, mode preference, time preference, day prfeerence as soon as possible.
Special Event Notice #2

We are expanding the discussions to kit building and other ham radio projects.
