Important Updates for Hamfest 2013
Please go to the Saskatchewan Hamfest Page for information I have just added more updates to the page. Please make sure you check it out.
Please remember the Hamfest will be in BATTLEFORD, not North Battleford
This website has had a few major changes, and it is still a work in progress. We have added new photos to the Saskatchewan Hamfest page - the Jubilee Hamfest, July 1, 1955 with a thank you to Mike VE5AU who gave me the photo, and also the 1954 picture, and I can't remember who sent it to me. Thanks Gentlemen, I really appreciate them. Also if you check the side menu you will see that I have added a section called Memories. To date, I have 2005 to 2012 photos up. Also under photos is one called Misc. photos. These are just some pictures that folks have sent me that are not hamfest related. Hope you are enjoying your new website.
The purpose of this site is to help share knowledge about events, clubs and Amateur radio groups throughout Saskatchewan. We hope you will enjoy our new site, with a different look.
Here in Western Canada the vast open spaces make for some interesting challenges for Amateur Radio. We have a relatively small population compared to our land mass. Over the years Saskatchewan radio operators have tried to bridge the distance gap with a combination of different linking techniques. These are comprised of a radio and Internet based repeaters throughout the southern and northern areas.
There is also activity in the High Frequency radio bands with Nets to help those outside the reach of VHF & UHF repeaters. Please join with us here on the website where we try and bring areas of our province closer together by learning a little about different clubs, organizations and the events and activities they take part in.
Sincerely, SARL Board of Directors
