Just a note regarding MAVCOM linking (134*) to VE1NET VHF Repeater (Kirkhill) Parrsboro; that it is non operational at this time do to a UHF Link radio transmitter failure.

As a result, the  VE1NET VHF repeater is not accessible from MAVCOM until repairs can be completed on site.

73, Lorne


Have started a VIDEO page on the website under MORE.

If you are a site member you can post videos on the site. Not sure how much bandwidth or storage the site will use but will monitor it. I have placed the video (How to build a simple 2 Meter vertical antenna) by Randy K7AGE on the page. Enjoy!
