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!

(To the right is Glenn's photo of the DTMF Board)
Congratulations to VE1JBL, Jim!
VE1JBL Jim Langille, former President of the WARC and current club member, has volunteered
to take over the WARC Website. In fact, Jim has already established a "work in progress"
website which is hosted by www.webs.com. You can see his work here:

http://westcumbarc.webs.com/

We congratulate Jim upon taking on this task and wish him every success in keeping the club
informed of events and in documenting club activities. The website is in good hands with
VE1JBL at the helm!

Thank you Jim!
