I had this put in as I know there are times when my eyes are not as good as they should be due to that thing they call "Aging". Hope this helps all those with eye problems not just us older hams.

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.

Woman Creates Candles As Excuse To Attend Hamfests

By WBØRUR, on the scene

WEST MOLINE, Nebraska – A Nebraska woman is offering a line of “ham radio scented” candles just in time for purchase at the Dayton Hamvention.

Maudie Carlisle of rural Milford County has been producing top-selling scented votives for over 20 years, but this is her first foray into amateur radio themed products.

She sells her wares – produced in her Nebraska root cellar – at over 50 arts and crafts fairs each year under the “Carlisle’s Cornhusker Candles” brand.

“Usually, we sell floral scented candles…with names like ‘Lilac Valley Surprise’, ‘Night in a Damp Rose Garden’ and ‘I See a Bright Chrysanthemum; Let’s Pick It,’” says the gray haired grandmother, who adds that she became interested in candle making after taking a class at the local extension service office.

“My husband’s been a ham radio operator for years, and he encouraged me to come up with “ham radio scented” candles so I can travel with him to hamfests,” she says.

Carlisle’s Cornhusker ham radio scented candles – stylishly designed to look good on any ham radio operating desk or fireplace mantel – will be offered in 5 intoxicating ham radio aromas:

  • “MY FINALS ARE ON FIRE MUSK”
  • “INSULATION BURNING OFF POWER LEADS”
  • “BITTER, BITTER COFFEE AND CIGARETTE SMOKE”
  • “SOMEONE NEEDS A SHOWER AND IT AIN’T ME”
  • “I SHOULD HAVE LOOKED FOR THE CAT BEFORE I FIRED UP THE AMPLIFIER”

Maudie says the Dayton Hamvention is her first big hamfest experience, although she has sold product at local hamfests;  usually next to the lady selling doilies, the lady selling home-made jewelry and the guy selling bottles of grape juice with amazing healing properties.

"The trouble with being punctual is that nobody's there to appreciate it."
