weather radio

[html] My name Is Kent, VE4KEH, and I’ve recently accepted an assignment maintaining the Environment Canada Weather Radio (and ATAD) network in the Prairies.  I would like to ask the ARES ECs in Alberta and Saskatchewan if they would canvass their CANWARN members to act as rosources to assist in monitoring the network. Would you please forward this request to them, and ask that they contact me?  Either my work or RAC address is fine. Kent Haase

[html] It is with sadness that I need to announce VE6UC Don Osterland from Red Deer, became a silent key Sunday October 4th, 2009.  Don suffered an acute stroke on September 15th.  A Memorial  gathering was held at 2:30 PM on Friday October 9th at the Usona Curling Rink.Â
On behalf of all the local hams we extend our sympathies to Norma and her family.
