Amateur Radio Course

An Amateur Radio course is usually given each fall.

Field Day

Each summer, at the end of June, the “ham operators” from the West Island Amateur Radio Club (WIARC) will join thousands of other North American amateur radio operators for the annual Field Day Contest to prepare for communications support in case of disaster.

The objective of this event is to set up and effectively operate long distance amateur radio independently of any permanent facilities including commercial power.

In 2011 the event took place June 25 and 26 at Dorval, Pine Beach park.
