Amateur Radio Display at the Pen Centre Shopping Centre
The Niagara Peninsula Amateur Radio Club was at the Pen Centre Shopping Centre in St. Catharines on Saturday, October 20th, 2007. Members were in attendance from 10 am to 3 pm explaining amateur radio to the shopping public.
Here are a few photos from the display; for more, click here.
Jake, VE3NCL (left) and Ken, VE3MAZ discuss amateur radio and EchoLink. EchoLink software allows licensed Amateur Radio stations to communicate worldwide with one another over the Internet, using voice-over-IP (VoIP).
An HF radio (left) is connected to a computer. Many amateurs now use computers to log contacts, to control their radios, to communicate
digitally, to track other amateurs and to connect to the internet.
