The annual CANWARN training session for the London area has been scheduled for Thursday April 24. It takes place in room T1003 at Fanshawe College (near the front door on Oxford Street) and starts at 7:00 PM.
This is always an informative and entertaining session, and is open to the general public. Taking the training multiple times is not only permitted, but is recommended so you can be up-to-date on any procedural changes. It is mandatory for anyone acting as a CANWARN severe weather spotter to take this course at least once. At the end of the session, attendees will be issued CANWARN Id's which allow them to make severe weather reports directly to Environment Canada. Map of the Fanshawe London Campus.
The VE3OME repeater which has had it's transmitter stuck for quite a while was brought back to normal operations on March 26 after a power cycle was done. A large thank you goes to Dave Lambert VE3KGK, whose tenacity in pursuing this was monumental, to the point of sneaking up on someone who had access to the repeater site while they were eating their lunch. The executive is considering various measures to reduce the chances of outages like this "repeating" in the future.
