All,  Remember QCWA won't have a face to face holiday party/meeting on Saturday, 11 Dec at PJ Skidoos.  Next meeting will be January 15th ... most likely by Zoom.

Also, there is a possibility that the 146.685 MHz repeater will be off the air starting on Friday, Dec 10th.  Our regular Sunday morning net will be hosted on the NVFMA 146.910 MHz repeater at 9am.  Hope to see you on the net on Sunday.

We're pleased to provide you a link to the YouTube video of our November meeting, where our visitor, Bruce Littlefield discussed his Grandfather Paul Godfley's 2ZE exploits conducting the 1921 ARRL Transatlantic Radio Test.  to view the vid, click here:  https://youtu.be/-5eGJ9EIIzE  

Also, on Dec 11th, the 100th anniversary of the test, about 9pm in the evening ARRL is attempting to recreate the radio test, and the event will be live streamed.  The live stream will be on and off all day long, first at the museum most of the day and into the evening live streaming various parts of the day (and hopefully a museum tour!)  at https://www.youtube.com/user/mikefef
