The new season is upon us:
Well the nights are finally getting cooler as the Summer draws to a close, with the first club meeting of the new year on Tuesday, September 4th at the Temperance Hall in Sharon.
I'm sure we're looking forward to seeing each other again. John VE3IPS will be delivering our first presentation on SOTA (Summits on the Air).
On a sadder note, we are starting the year without Brad Fowles, VE3HII, who passed away shortly before Field Day 2018. Brad was renowned for his field day satellite efforts and his workshops on microcontrollers, which many of us participated in and struggled to understand. We are glad that in recent years that Alex, VA3ASE, became his protégé and was able to put in a good showing for the satellite operation in FD 2018.
I’d also like to recognize Nick, VE3NJV, a long-time contributor to the club who reached his 90th birthday this summer, and wish him many more birthdays and seasons of Peonies to come.
