Buffalos on the Air: a ham radio event at RAMWC

July 22, 2023 @ 11:00 am 5:00 pm

On July 22 in Comox, BC, Winnipeg, MB, Trenton, ON, and Summerside, PEI, amateur radio operators will use existing antennae on CC115 Buffalos to communicate with each other and with other amateur radio operators throughout the USA and Canada.

Operators at each location will take turns and operate for several hours. There will be other amateur radio volunteers standing by who can talk about what the amateur radio service is.

Event volunteers will provide info sheets about the Buffalo and its history at the event. Wherever possible, veterans and former members who have experience with the Buffalo or other RCAF aircraft will be on-site to talk about their experiences.

The four sites will be attempting a Buffalo net coast-to-coast on 14.135 MHz SSB at noon EST (0900 PST) on Saturday, July 22.
