on the Island...

The History D-STAR, a standard published in 2001, is the result of three years of research funded by the Japanese government and administered by the JARL to investigate digital technologies for amateur radio. The research involved Japanese radio manufacturers and other observers. Icom provided the equipment used for development and testing. D-STAR radios and repeaters have been tested extensively and are now ready for public use. MARC has 2 D_STAR repeaters on the island, with the distinction of being the first ones in Northern Ontario.

VE3YYL Silent Key

VE3YYL, Larry Becks of McKerrow, Ontario, passed away 31 July, 2013 at the age of 67 years.

I just spoke to his grandson, Storm VA3YYS and he informed me there will be a BBQ/get together at Larry's property in Spanish; the address is Lot 12 Concession 6 Foster Township on Wednesday, 7 August 2013, from 12 Noon to 4 P.M.

He also said Ken Niles VE3YYK would have a bit more information.

Storm is monitoring VE3RMI; again his call is VA3YYS; please give him a call...

From all of the Manitoulin Amateur Radio Club, our thoughts and prayers go out to Larry's family; he was a great guy and a real asset to Amateur Radio; he will be sorely missed.

I will post and further updates here, so please, keep checking back.

Obituary to follow.
