Great that you’ve decided to add your Amateur radio group, club and or organization to the Club Listings Repository on hamshack. With your help we’ll ‘build’ the the most complete and up-to-date on-line repository of Canadian Amateur radio clubs and organizations. The Repository will serve as a useful resource for all users seeking information about ham radio clubs and organizations in all regions of Canada.
Many people only think of amateur radio as a hobby and overlook the many public services provided by ham radio clubs and organizations. Most Clubs are very active in the community providing a wide-range of services some of which include:
- Public awareness sessions on the many services provided by amateur radio clubs and organizations
- Basic and advanced training for new operators
- Development and maintenance of extensive communications repeater systems
- Provision of communications and logistical support for public events
- Partnering with public organizations and groups to provide communications and logistical support during emergencies
It is anticipated that public organizations may access the Club Repository information to help identify amateur radio resources when planning local emergency services communications requirements.
