Peterborough Lawn Bowling Club, 577 McDonnel St. Peterborough.
Each spring, I reiterate the importance of the role that CANWARN spotters play in Environment and Climate Change Canada’s severe weather watch and warning program. During the training, we have also made mention of the importance of getting reports for winter-time severe weather. I am happy to say, after reviewing CANWARN reports over the last few months, that the Weather Centre received a number of timely and useful winter reports from CANWARN members. These reports included ones about dense fog, the occurrence of freezing rain and the provision of snowfall accumulations. For those interested in attending one of the following sessions, please RSVP to email@example.com with the session to intend to take.
The new Facebook group is for all to have some fun, exchange ideas thoughts and images of your triumphs and fun on the air, projects, photos of your shack or if you see a band opening or know of a special station let us know. Come on in and join the group.

The new Sinclair 2M 2 dipole antenna was successfully installed June 29th, 2014. Unfortunetly, the new antenna did not fix the repeater noise issue. Click here for photos from the top of the Water Tower taken during the 2009 antenna installation.
