Greeting

Welcome to the website home of the White Rock Amateur Radio Club. Situated on the north shore of Semiahmoo Bay, White Rock is one of the garden cities of Canada.

The Radio Club was formed at the request of long term resident and mayor, Hardy Staub, VE7IDY, to provide the city with an Amateur radio communication resource, should the need arise.

White Rock enjoys a great location for Amateur Radio. Located on the south slope of a bluff running east-west on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, radio communications are almost unrestricted to the south and west with a clear shot over salt water in those directions. HF communications are possible over the North Pole to Europe and the Middle East as the nearest mountains are almost 100 Km to the north.

Feel free to browse thorough these pages and use the links provided. If you live near or are visiting in the area, we’d love to hear you on our VHF repeater, or see you at one of our meetings.

73,
Ralph Webb, VE7OM

Field Day 2013

Field Day 2013 dawned bright and dry for the White Rock club this year.  We were to set up near Ruth Johnson Park at the Centennial Arena this year, a new site that we had not used in the past.

Shortly after 9AM, Jim, VE7UVL and Eric, VA7NX were at the site along with Deme, VE7CRT and Ralph, VE7OM setting up equipment, antennas and just enjoying the activities.  Jim set up his camper and dipole, and Eric put up his long dipole that he used for his backcountry operations.

As we got up and running before the start time, Stuart, VA7QB showed up with a supply of coffee to help the operating get a ‘wet’ start.  The bands weren’t quite what we would have expected, and the opening contacts were hard to get.  Deme used his Elecraft™ KX3 to make a few contacts on 20 CW, and Jim went onto 40 SSB.
