ARRL’s Role in Canada
Radio amateurs on both sides of our
northern border have a shared history.
By David Sumner, K1ZZ, reprinted with
permission from Oct 2014 QST

JOTA was held at St Andrews Church on 1st St W, Owen Sound from 10:00 hrs
to 16:30 hrs on Saturday, October 18, 2014. JOTA 2014 was a success with stations
contacted and amateur radio demonstrated to the scouts and guides in attendance.
Doug VE3WRF used his station consisting of an FT840, MFJ tuner and a windom
antenna installed as a sloper. The antenna was strung from the top of the church bell
tower to ground and worked very well with stations contacted in Canada as well as the
US. Thanks to those in attendance, Doug VE3WRF, Adam VE3IZS, Tom VA3TS and
Dave VE3WI.
