  • To have the ability to vote at club meetings and add your opinion to the discussion and shape the future of the Charlottetown Amateur Radio Club
  • To make new friends, young and old and in between
  • To learn more about Amateur Radio – each club meeting for example includes a time of ‘show and tell’ where you will learn about ladder line, or Winlink, or some other aspect of Amateur Radio as we share our knowledge and interest. You’ll learn a lot from fellow hams and from the monthly meetings!
