Field Day 2015
Yes we are thinking about this already. Thoughts and ideas to make an already good event better.

The last L.A.R.C. meeting was held on October 9, 2014 at the usual time of 7:30 pm.
The guest speaker was Mark Bramwell, VE3PZR on the topic of the MESH Network. This technology is an initiative being taken up by a group of members within LARC.
As a reference please have a look at Hamnet
Saturday and Sunday contacts were worked all over the Canada & USA as well as a contact in Spain and Bermuda. Thanks goes out to all those who participated. We hope to make this an annual event as it was very well received by the public.
HamFest was another success for LARC
The 2 Radioworld Gift Certificates for $250 went to Tom Pillon VE3HOR and Jim Ballantine VA3JBY from Mt Brydges.
We thank all those hams who came out to support the event.
We would also like to thank all the vendors who took the time to come to London.
Planning for next years event is already underway.
Our Guest Speaker for September, Rod Hardman from RAC
