Little Thunder QRP Club
(The Official homepage of The Little Thunder QRP Club, brought to you by Fred VE3FAL, license holder for VE3LTQ)
Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada
VE3LTQ Fists Member: # 10325
The Little Thunder QRP was formed a few years ago by a group of amateurs in the Thunder Bay area who showed a keen interest in radio, morse code, and home brewing. We have about a dozen members in the club who participate in meetings, QRP Field day, QRPTTF, Flight of the Bumblebees and many other events.
We are a no dues, no constitution club, just a group of hams who have fun running low power, building antennas and rigs.
Anyone can join our club and take part. A membership # is available upon request.
I will be adding some club pictures as time goes on, and with input from other members I will add other material as well. If you have any comments or suggestions for the web page or links that should be and could be added, please pass them on to myself.

VE3JWT (James Whalen Tug)

100th Anniversary of the Tugboat James Whalen
I will be operating with a special callsign for the month of October to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Tugboat James Whalen.
The tug was built in Toronto in 1905 and its home port was Port Arthur, Ontario (Now Thunder Bay).
She was used for ice breaking in the harbor and was part of the Canadian Towing and Wrecking Company of Port Arthur when they acquired her in 1906.
She was transferred and moved around to various home ports over her life span, some of these ports included Midland, and the St. Lawrence Seaway.
First wireless message sent from a Canadian vessel on the Great Lakes was sent from the Tug James Whalen April 4 1910.
The James Whalen is now a Museum ship and is moored on the Kaministiquia River at Mariners Park, and can be seen and visited at this site.
The James Whalen is activated during the annual Museum Ship Event Weekend held in July of each year.
I am looking forward to activating the special call in the month of October to celebrate this tugs history and work that it had done for the Twin Cities of Port Arthur and Fort William.
Have you ever wished that Straight Key Night
would go on and on and on?
