Basic Amateur Radio Course
The QARC & PERC will be conducting a Basic Amateur Radio course this fall. Click here for schedule.
Classes will start on Monday Sept. 26, and end on Monday Nov. 21. Classes will be held on Monday & Wednesday nights, except on nights noted in the schedule. Classes begin at 7:00 PM and end around 9:00 PM.
We have excellent instructors who will teach you to pass the exam. Morse code is no longer required to pass the exam. The exam consists of 100 multiple choice questions; and 70% is a pass.
The classroom is located at the home of Mike Papper VE3OX. A map to Mike's house is at the bottom of the schedule.
The cost of the course is $80.00 and includes the study guide, regulations, complete question bank with over 600 questions, instructor handouts and exam. We will also provide the coffee and treats. 
If you have any questions call me(Mike) at 613-969-1744.
As at July 25th we have 5 students and more are most welcome.

The Countering Distracted Driving and Promoting Green Transportation Act 2009
NOTE: The Ontario  Ministry of Transportation has given a 5 year extension.

This became effective on Sept 6, 2012

In order to prevent any unnecessary delay, Canadian Amateurs in Ontario should consider carrying a copy of their Certificate of Proficiency plus a copy of the exemptions section of Bill 118. (Here’s the link: Ontario Highway Traffic Act Regulation 366/09 // CLICK Here for PDF file of Regulation.)

While such stops maybe annoying, the ability to produce these documents quickly would likely prove helpful.

If you are stopped by police for operating your two-way radio equipment, Radio Amateurs of Canada would very much like to hear from you. RAC will be keeping a record of any such stops for possible future use in their ongoing talks with government officials.

Any information can be forwarded to: rachq@rac.ca - It would also be helpful to send a copy to your local Amateur Radio Club President.
