Hamfest 2014, Thanks

The Burlington Amateur Radio Club thanks everyone who made the 40th Ontario Hamfest successful on Saturday July 12. Beautiful weather set the tone for a great day. There was a full house of vendors inside and a great turnout of tailgate vendors. It looked like attendance was solid and all areas seemed busy. Thanks to all who worked to setup the event, operate it and tear down the facilities after. Thanks also go the the Hamfest Committee who have been working on event plans since Hamfest 2013.

Special thanks to Radioworld and their sponsorship of the guest speaker Bob Heil of Heil Sound. Bob’s two seminars were well attended and enjoyed by all. Bob is a wonderful guest and always makes himself accessible to individual attendees. The Ontario Hamfest Committee and the Burlington Amateur Radio club apologizes to all who attended for the very limited food service available. Circumstances that arose just prior to the event made the traditional food service impossible and attempts to find a last minute alternative were unsuccessful. We are confident a solution will be found that will make food service at Hamfest 2015 better than ever.

Congratulations to the three SuperPrize winners.

Welcome

Welcome to the new version of the Burlington Amateur Radio Club Website. We hope you will find it easy to navigate and that everything you want can be found within its pages. The site has a number of new elements and, hopefully, all of the previous site’s elements. There are a few pages that at launch may be somewhat light on content or detail and that will gradually be remedied.

You may find some peculiarities with the site, particularly if you are using a mobile device. Please contact the Web Services Administrator with any questions or problems.

The theme and concept have changed. Pages accessible from the top menu system contain the most constant information and the small magnifying glass icon at the rightmost extreme allows you to search for specific keywords in the website content. The home page contains the most rapidly changing information such as meeting or event announcements and news that may be of interest to users in the form of sequential posting. Posts containing the most important information may be accessed through a set of sliding images displayed near the top of the home page. Information pages regarding regular club activities may be accessed directly through an array of medium sized images immediately below the sliding feature. Shortcuts to various other elements of the site may be accessible from a side bar element. Finally, contact information and social media links are at the bottom of the homepage.
