I was informed by André, VE9ARG, that he received the sad news this morning from Wayne's wife that he had passed this morning. Wayne was a longtime member of MAARC and had remained active, within his limitations, until very recently.
André will forward any and all information about Wayne's funeral when it is available.
Rest in Peace VE1RR and I hear the DX is really good up there.
Note: Mr. Gillcash's obituary is now on our Silent Keys page.
This years 2019 Amateur Radio Basic Course begun today with 17 students in attendance. Lead by Yvon (VE1VON), the students were treated to an introduction of Ham Radio basics. Thanks to Yvon and the many other volunteer instructors, we are looking forward to another great batch of licensed Amatuer Radio Operators this year. Welcome aboard!
