CARESS VE7SCC At Coquitlam Treefest 2014

On Saturday, September 13, 2014, Paul VA7CDB and Richard VA7RLW represented CARESS at the 2014 Coquitlam Treefest located at the Riverview Hospital Grounds.

At our display, we demonstrated our capabilities as volunteer emergency communication providers to the City of Coquitlam.

We ran a Grab-n-Go kit and a 20m Zepp dipole antenna along with a 2m VHF station.

We had many interested visitors along with representatives from the City of Coquitlam, (Concillors Terry O’Neill and Craig ¬†Hodge) along with the Province of BC (MLAs Linda Reimer, Selina Robinson and John Horgan).
