Mike from the Guelph Amateur Radio Club works the radio with a young visitor.
Remembrance traditions continue at McCrae House with the return of the Guelph Amateur Radio Club. Now in its 21st season, the group will again be sending and receiving remembrance messages at the birthplace of John McCrae from Monday, November 2 to Wednesday, November 11.
Members of the Radio Club look forward to contacting, via the airwaves, ham radio enthusiasts around the world. This is their opportunity to acknowledge Remembrance Day and exchange thoughts on its significance. The Club also assists the Museum in educating children and adult groups taking part in Remembrance programs offered throughout the week.
