Club History

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.

Subject:

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.

Description

Have you ever wished that Straight Key Night would go on and on and on?

Have you ever wished for other incentives to dig out your old straight key
or old bug and knock the dust off?

Ever wished they had a Straight Key Night more than once a year?

That is a light you see at the end of the tunnel!! Recently, a group of
hams have decided to make their wishes come true and founded the Straight
Key Century Club - a/k/a "SKCC". Yep, a Straight Key club - where you can
dust off your straight key or old bug, and get on the air and torture other
ops with your straight key fist .

Here's how it will work:

A) Open to any interested amateur
B) Membership is free, there are no dues and it shall stay that way as
long as practical.
C) SKCC numbers are issued for life. Once you get it, it's yours.
Take care of it. Above all, USE it.

The first day of each month, at 0000Z will be designated as a monthly
operating event that allows SKCC members or non-SKCC members to work each
other for credit. Contact with 100 SKCC members will qualify that person
for a certificate of accomplishment.

Suggested operating frequencies are:
1.820
3.720
7.120
10.120
14.048
18.080
21.120
24.910
28.170
50.090
144.07
