Thanks for Visiting Your New SARL Website

The purpose of this site is to help share knowledge about events, clubs and Amateur radio groups throughout Saskatchewan. We hope you will enjoy our site, with a different look.

Here in Western Canada the vast open spaces make for some interesting challenges for Amateur Radio. We have a relatively small population compared to our land mass. Over the years Saskatchewan radio operators have tried to bridge the distance gap with a combination of different linking techniques. These are comprised of a radio and Internet based repeaters throughout the southern and northern areas.

There is also activity in the High Frequency radio bands with Nets to help those outside the reach of VHF & UHF repeaters. Please join with us here on the website where we try and bring areas of our province closer together by learning a little about different clubs, organizations and the events and activities they take part in.

At the very bottom of this page, just above the copyright you will see a + - reset. If you are having a problem reading the print on this website, click the + sign 2 or 3 times, and the print will become larger. If you forget how many times you clicked, just press the reset and it will go back to the original size. I had this put in as I know there are times when my eyes are not as good as they should be due to that thing they call "Aging". Hope this helps all those with eye problems not just us older hams.

For change of address for IC/RAC/SARL, please go to the Membership Information page.

RAC Info:   Bj Madson VE5FX Mid-West Director

As you may know, your membership expiry date appears on the label of your latest TCA magazine, right above your callsign. Please be sure to renew in time to avoid a lapse in membership.

Also, should you change your address, you are required to inform ISEC within 30 days. You can easily do this using the information in the box at the top of this Report.

One of the concerns which affect the availability of callsigns is the issue of Silent Keys. If ISEC is not informed by the receipt of either an obituary or a death certificate of the passing of an Amateur, they will keep that callsign registered to that individual until the age of 125 years! Please take the time to inform them of the passing of any of your licensed friends or relatives.

On another note I would like to bring to your attention the following according to Industry Canada, a call sign will be issued using a prefix based on where the applicant resides. An amateur who subsequently changes his residence from one call sign prefix area to another shall apply for a change of call sign with the prefix allocated for this new area of operation.
