The Club station operates from  the Myrick Wireless Interpretation Centre at Cape Race, NF.  The Centre is a replica of the Marconi Station that went on the air n Nov. 17th, 1904.  It is the site where Cape Race received all the Distress Traffic from the RMS Titanic on April 14th, l

1912, Cape Race let the rest of the world know through the  UnderwaterCable Systems that connected North America  via Cape Ray, NL and to Europe via Hearts Content NL.  Contrary to  some local  opinion, Admiralty House in St John’s didn’t  play any part in the Titanic Disaster.  It wasn’t built until 1914, some two years  after The Titanic sank.  The call sign of our station is VO1MCE (MCE was the call sign of Cape Race Radio from 1904 until 1913 when  it was changed to VCE, which was in use until 1967).We invite all Amateur and  professional  radio operators to come and visit us  at Cape Race in 2012, with ongoing  events to commemorate the 100th anniversary of The Titanic Disaster.

Club Notes:

The Annapolis Valley Amateur Radio Club (AVARC) is an informal association of Hams.  We have no constitution, bylaws, membership dues, or even regular meetings at present.  Instead, we keep members up to date on developments and news of interest through our website and Facebook page, and periodically gather to participate in club activities such as Field Day, or to assist members.  Although it is primarily for Amateurs in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, membership is open to anyone interested in the art, science and magic of radio.

Among other topics, we promote DX’ing, contesting, weak signal VHF, digital modes, and public service.   Education is one of our primary concerns, both to expand our own knowledge and to help those who want to become Amateurs.  We have dedicated a section of our web page to a series of presentations covering the entire Basic Qualification curriculum.  Additional presentations on different aspects of Ham Radio will be added in due time.

We are also very conscious of the valuable role that Amateurs can play in times of emergency.  To that end we emphasize our ability to set up portable stations such as during Field Day, and developing the skills to pass information in a crisp, efficient and professional manner.  We believe that there is far more to Amateur Radio than just Two Meter FM repeaters, and we have no desire to become yet another geriatric armchair repeater club!
