2. Inter-County CANWARN Network

The new Inter-County CANWARN Network (ICCN) is being launched this
spring, and will be activated on the new Ontario Public Service IRLP
Reflector # 9030 during severe weather events that generate watches
and warnings issued by Environment Canada Toronto.

The purpose and benefit of this network will be to provide a
co-ordinated link between adjacent counties in the warned regions,
and to create a continuous path for the delivery of urgent weather
reports directly to the Toronto Weather Office using the online
reporting form or the dedicated landline number.

4. “Discover Homebrew” at Dayton

The Dayton Hamvention and the Midwest VHF/UHF Society will host a
“Discover Homebrew” demonstration area at the Dayton Hamvention, May
14-16 in Dayton, Ohio.

Located in booths 179, 180, 191, 192, and booths 203, 204, 215, and
216 in the North Hall, there will be 6 eight foot tables available to
accommodate many homebrewers simultaneously. AC power will be
provided, along with HF and possibly VHF antenna access. All you need
to do is bring your favorite home built project, set it up and
demonstrate it to anyone who is interested.

The only restriction is that no sales may be conducted from the demo
area. If you have commercial plans for your project, it is fine to go
ahead and talk about them.  For details, see www.hamvention.org.
