Welcome to the Sask Alta Radio Club. We will try to keep this website up to date for the information of our members and anyone else interested in our activities or ham radio in general. Also you can check us out on Facebook
We have club meetings to discuss our projects, policies and activities at 7:00 PM on the first Tuesday of February, April, June, September and November at a location in Lloydminster. Emails are sent before every meeting with an agenda and meeting place and the information will be posted here as well.
We gather for breakfast every Saturday morning from 8:30 AM until about 11:00 AM at Louis Family Restaurant in the Days Hotel at 5411 – 44 Street (Hwy 16). Look for our group in the back corner. Visitors are welcome. The VE5RI (146,940-) repeater will be monitored during the breakfast.
For those passing through at any time, you stand a good chance of contacting someone whenever you call on our system . It covers from Paynton SK to Vegreville AB and a good distance on each side. (click VE5RI).
There is a Sunday evening net on the VE5RI system at 9:00 PM. This net has been operating intermittently since the club started in 1975. Please join us for a quick chat and update on activities of each check-in. We watch for Echolink check-ins also.
Looking at becoming Amateur Radio Operator? We hold classes once a year. Greg, VA6GWS, is our key contact. Check our New Ham Page
