    Hi, I live in Pennsylvania, U.S.A. My brother lives just outside of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada. I have a ham radio license, he doesn’t. i have been talking to him about getting one. Anyhow, I visited in 2018 and plan on coming back to visit sometime this summer. I hope to talk with some folks on the air when I come up.

    Can someone contact me regarding repeaters co-located @ Telus Heatburg & Big Valley. There are some changes coming for these 2 sites, and I need to discuss this with the club.

    I live in Carstairs and am interested in obtaining a Ham license.

    I found an online course training website called “”, but it appears to be US based. I cannot find something similar in Canada. I don’t know if what is learned in that course is applicable in Canada and I can then just challenge the exam(s), nor can I find any online searches for classes in Alberta, etc…

    I’m sure you could point me in the correct direction, so welcome you feedback.

    Thanks in advance.
