The University of New Brunswick Amateur Radio Club (VE9UNB) has just graduated another group of new amateurs.

According to Brent Peterson (VE9EX), “Ten amateur radio exams were passed today (January 17, 2019) at the University of New Brunswick, one advanced, five basic with honours, and four basic, bringing the cumulative number passed to 143 since June 20, 2010.

Congratulations to the VE9UNB club and VE9EX for the fine work helping new amateurs obtain their qualification.  We look forward to hearing the new amateurs on the air soon!

Thanks to some help from some local amateurs, long-time IRG member Keith Estey, VE1KRE is back on the air from his new home at the York Care Centre.  Keith is well known for his net control duties on the Miramichi Area VHF Net on the IRG on Wednesday nights.

With help of Scott Arnold VE1CSA and Al Thurber VE1RG, Keith has an antenna installed for his 2m radio so he can reach some local repeaters and keep in touch with friends on the air.  Give Keith a shout on the VE1BM or VE9FNB repeaters.

Helping hands help hams

"Fine business" is the best way to say it, after some help from the Fredericton Amateur Radio Club and IRG members put Jim Noseworthy VE1HJN back on the air. Some deck renovations required the antenna to be moved and so helping hands worked today (June 23) to put Jim back on the air. Good work everyone!
