The club station is available for members and interested individuals to explore operating aspects of amateur radio.
The station is outfitted with an impressive array of antenna and radio equipment including Yaesu FT2000 transceivers, Alpha 9500 amplifiers, twin 100 foot tall towers with stacked Bencher Skyhawk antennas. HF and VHF contesting and DXing are major activities and the club station gives members the opportunity to practice and develop their skills in a competitive radiosport environment. Our recent logs show 286 DXCC countries worked.
The Club is funded by memberships as well as grants from the Province of Alberta's Gaming and Liquor Commission's (AGLC) Charity Casino Program for the purpose of supporting Amateur Radio as a service to the community.
The station stands ready to be used as a highly capable emergency communications facility in times of world disaster.
