IRLP node 2470 is down for operating system upgrades. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Mike VA3MW and Paul VE3KU visited Skyloft today to fix a few things.
- 224.860 functional
- 442.100 down for maintenance - should be back in about a week
- 53.03 down for maintenance - should be back in about a week
And, if you don't think it doesn't get windy on the top of the tower, I recorded this speed on October 29th around 7:45 in the morning. No wonder things move around up there.
VE3BEG 224.860 is back on the air, still in stand-alone mode. Thanks to Mike VA3MW for fixing it.
The VE3TWR UHF repeater is back online- thanks to Mike VA3MW and Paul VE3KU.
VE3TWR UHF repeater is currently off the air. As an alternative, please use our VHF repeater (145.410 MHz).

I would like to announce the passing of Salt Jones, VE3PJ, at the remarkable age of 99 last Sunday. I first met Salt at one of the Nortown meetings back in the 60's at the old Civil Defence building on Davenport Rd. My father told me that he and my aunt were very good friends as children back in the 20's and 30's when they lived on Greensides avenue in Toronto! Salt soon joined the Scarborough Club, the QCWA and the TFMCS. I believe he helped TFMCS build the RPT concrete bunker at Uxbridge.
May He rest in Peace!
All TFMCS Members,
This year's picnic will be delayed until spring. TFMCS will host a general meeting in the coming months. The date, place and time will be presented shortly.
As always, please forward any questions or concerns to info at tfmcs.org
TFMCS will be at the Ontario Hamfest in Milton this coming Saturday, July 11. Hope to see you there.
