Club History ....

The Club was originally a special interest group, locally formed under its mother Club, the Peel Amateur Radio Club of Brampton. This group was interested in the construction of a Six Metre repeater, which would be located just outside of Georgetown. Our first meeting was held on November 19th 1977, with four members :

·Rod Pears VE3IXB, now VA3RP
·Jim Colter VE3IBH
·John Langtry SWL, now VE3NEC
·Ron Reynolds VE3IHG, now VE3USA

On November 22nd 1978, the Club drew up its first Constitution, under which the Club would function in the future.

Over the years, the Club continued to grow, and by 1980 had sufficient resources and members to form a stand alone club. By 1981, the repeater was moved to its current location, Northwest of Georgetown and South of Ballinafad. With the passing of one of our members, the repeater took on his call sign VE3OD. The repeater changed from a Six Metre machine to Two Metres, and by 1985 a second repeater on the 70 Cm band was added to the site. In 1996 the 70Cm repeater changed its call to VA3HR, as a memorial to another member.

With the continued growth of the Club, courses of instruction were made available to those members who did not have their radio licences. Meetings, which used to be called on an "ad hoc" basis, became a regular monthly gathering, usually featuring an interesting guest speaker. In 1996, the Club was formally incorporated.
