CLUB ACTIVITIES - Our club is very active in many activities and one of it's notable attributes is public service communications. The club provides this service to many community activities throughout the region. We also have an active Emcomm/ARES group that has established stations at various emergency operations centres in the region including the regional headquarters (seat of Regional government) in Newmarket. Field Days (both Winter and Summer) are also a very big event for the club. Typically we operate class 5A with a GOTA station, satellite station and a 6m station as well. The York Region Hamfest held on the first Saturday in November is one of the largest in Canada and brings together hams from all over Ontario.Other annual events include the club barbeque on the first Tuesday in June and the club Christmas party on the first Tuesday in December. Club meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month (except July and August) with a program of interest to amateur radio operators.
