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.

SARL Directors & Executive.

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.

 Local Man Returns Hamfest Doorprize

By K5KVN, on the scene

BLOCKTOWN, NEBRASKA – Moments after winning a door prize at the Midwest Hills Hamfest, one local ham radio operator says he began having second thoughts about keeping the prize.

“I never win anything. So, imagine my delight when they called my name,” said Bert Beleighmuh, who was one of the lucky winners last weekend.

Hamfest officials say about a dozen door prizes were available at the hamfest, all donated by club members.

“They handed me a 4-pack of used Chinese-made PL259s that still had some solder in the barrels. I turned to head back to the snack bar, but turned right back around and just shook my head,” said Beleighmuh.

Witnesses say the hamfest emcee, Willard Persing, was stunned but handled it well. “Well, I covered the microphone with my hand and jokingly said, ‘You ungrateful S-O-B,’” Persing explained.

He then handed Beleighmuh, an extra-class ham radio operator, the next prize in the stack: a technician-class exam study guide.

“Now that’s something that might come in handy,” said Beleighmuh.
