Bike Maine 2018 

Over 450 riders will hit the roads this week in northern Maine along the border.  As part of the event, amateur radio operators will provide communication support along the way, and the IRG is pleased to help them out.  You may hear activity on the repeaters in the North West Zone and West Zone during the week, so please extend cooperation and a warm welcome to all the visitors.  You can find out more about the event — and even sign up to volunteer!  Look for the link on the IRG web site.

Summer weather review and fall outlook

How hot was it compared to previous summers in New Brunswick?  Was it really hotter and drier than normal in my area?  What might be ahead this autumn in the Maritimes?  All these questions and more can be answered in the very detailed report from Jill Maepea, Meteorologist with Environment & Climate Change Canada.  You can find her informative monthly PDF reports on the IRG web site.
