I have just received the sad news that Fred Fox, VE3XOF, passed away earlier today Wednesday, February 18, 2015. His wife, Chris just called me with the news and asked me to tell his friends in Amateur Radio.
Fred had been a long-time member of Scarborough ARC and a member of Senators. He had been active on the Executive of the club and a Field Day regular. Recently he had been suffering from Parkinson’s disease and had moved to a nursing home for the care that he needed.
Please let others know of his passing as you think appropriate. My next email will go out to the Senators.
2014 SET (Simulated Emergency Test) will take place on Saturday October 18.
There will be a meeting on Friday September 19 at 7:30pm at the Regent Park Aquatic Centre, 640 Dundas Street East. The 505 Dundas Street Car runs right past the Centre, street parking also available.
We are hoping that many of our present members and Amateur operators that would like to take part in this exercise will attend. If you are unable to attend but would like to take part please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
The Toronto ARES group is now affiliated with The Toronto Amateur Radio Club and The Toronto Red Cross.
