Ham radio club meetings "on the air" are called "Nets". Oakville ARES holds a weekly net on the 147.015 Mhz VE3OAK VHF repeater at 19:30 hrs local time on Monday nights. Our ARES partners at the Halton Region Emergency Communications Team (HRECT) also hold a weekly net on the 147.345 Mhz VE3OBP repeater, which is also our regional Canwarn severe weather spotting repeater.
In the Club there are the two types of formal meetings:
1) the general Club meetings are held on the Second Sunday EVENING of the month from 7-9 pm. Check the weekly nets for locations as these are subject to change.
The meeting begins promptly at 7:30pm.
2) The ARES team (Amateur Radio Emergency Service, the field subsection of the club) meet on the Third Sunday from 1 - 4 pm. Again, check the weekly nets for location information.
Also we meet informally every Saturday morning at 7am in Cora's in the mall on the south-east corner of Dorval and the North Service road.
It is right beside Henry's camera shop.
Please join us for breakfast and get the latest local ham news.
NOTE:Always check the weekly net before the sunday meetings incase of a cancellation or venue change. Alternatively, check in on the OAK VHF repeater prior to the start of the meeting for any changes or updates.
