2017 Voyageurs Rendezvous APRS

I will be travelling with the 2017 Voyageurs Rendezvous providing water support with my jet boat. They will be traveling from Rocky Mountain House to The Pas MB from 1 July to 23 July as part of the Canada 150 celebrations. This will commemorate the worlds longest canoe race from Rocky Mountain House to Montreal which occurred during Canada’s 1967 Centennial year. Although I will not be using an APRS radio, I will be using iAPRS to track our journey via the cellular network whenever I have cellular service. If anyone is interested in tracking our progression, they can look for my little canoe under VE6DDD-10. Not sure what the cell service will be like but will give it a go anyhow. More info can be found at www.voyageursrendezvous.ca

Thanks

Darcy VE6DDD

Arduino Ham Radio Starter Kit


Webmaster or Executive – Central Alberta Amateur Radio Club

Earlier this year, I published a series of articles on my web site called the “Arduino Ham Radio Starter Kit”. The purpose of this information is to encourage more hams and their clubs to engage with the local maker community as a gateway to amateur radio.

These articles explain Arduino basics in a ham radio context. They contain many suggestions about how amateurs can use Arduinos, as well as how a ham club can engage other makers in hobby activities.
Please take a moment to review the Arduino Ham Radio Starter Kit articles. If you find them to be useful, please consider passing these along to your members or contacts.
You can use these articles by linking them to your web site, Twitter feed, Facebook page or by e-mail.

Thanks for your consideration. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me.
