NEW RADIOROOM

The brand new Gabriola #1 Fire Hall on Gabriola Island will have their open house this Sunday Oct 6th from 1-4pm.  As part of this open house CECA will have their new radio room open for visitors.  While the radio room is far from completed it will give the local folks an opportunity to see what amateur radio is all about, and the role of amateur radio in times of crisis.

17 DAYS UNTIL THE SHAKEOUT..

There are only 17 days until the Great BC Shakeout.  Have you registered your group yet? Only 12  radio groups in BC have registered for the event thus far.  This is an excellent event that allows you to check your emergency plan, your activation procedure, all without a lot of planning ( all the planning is done for you !)  It also provides an excellent venue for amateur radio to present to the public and show our abilities, equipment and commitment in the event of a crisis.
