Richard Hews of the club is interviewed  January 23, 2023 about Amateur Radio on the Island, click here to hear it

“Amateur radio fascinates a good number of fans in the country and several clubs exist to allow them to meet and exchange with them. This is the case in Charlottetown, where Amateurs like Richard Hews note an increase in public interest in this hobby.”



The club was interviewed on CBC in December 2022, check out the article by clicking here

“The amateur radio community on P.E.I. is growing, thanks in part to the COVID-19 pandemic and post-tropical storm Fiona.

Stratford resident Brent Taylor has been a ham radio operator for 38 years, in New Brunswick and P.E.I. He goes by the call sign VY2HF.

“It’s been absolutely fantastic. We have been so thrilled with the number of people that have come forward, and now that we’re getting them on the air,” Taylor said.”
