Video and Discussion of VK0IR DXpedition to Heard Island,
January 11, 2018


LARC will have a video/discussion of an expedition to Heard Island, in the subAntarctic Indian Ocean, during January, 1997. Twenty men, supported by hundreds of others, spent two weeks at the bottom of the world and the bottom of the sunspot cycle, making a world-record number of two-way radio contacts using the callsign VKØIR. For those of us who were participants, it was an amazing journey to the edge of our planet and beyond the edge of our experience. But it was more than that: It was a new kind of journey for amateur radio: a shared, collective experience in which thousands worldwide used advanced technology to become nearly real-time participants in this extraordinary adventure.

LARC moves web comms from
Yahoo Groups to Groups IO

At the December 2017 meeting, it was discussed and decided to move the club web communications from Yahoo Groups to Groups IO. Groups IO made the transfer seamless; anyone who belonged to the LARC Yahoo Group was automatically transfered over to Groups IO. is a free, easy-to-use email group service.
