It was sad to learn of the passing of Al Christie's (VE1ZS) daughter, Susan Hill. Our condolences go out
to Al, Mary and family at this difficult time. Here is the obituary from Campbell's Funeral Home in
Amherst, NS:

DTMF Board Turns on Lights at Home!

VE1GK, Glenn gave a short "Hints & Kinks" presentation during
the October club meeting regarding the DTMF board he has
through which he can use DTMF tones from an HT to turn on
lights at his home. In fact, he demonstrated this on the way home
from the meeting and I saw the flashing lights high up in Clairmont
while listening to his demo on two metres. Well done Glenn!

(Below is Glenn's photo of the DTMF Board)
Important Notice

Your WARC is looking for a club member to take over as Webmaster since VE1CHI JIm,
has resigned from this position effective the end of 2014. The job is not difficult and Jim is
offering to help get you into it and up to speed. It does require some time and it is a great
learning experience. Jim knew nothing about this position when he took over so knowing
nothing about it is not an excuse! Why not consider helping out your club by taking over the
website. If interested in this position, contact any of the club executive or Jim:
ve1chi@rac.ca
