After a very short business meeting, Martin VE6VH will be giving a presentation by the Alberta Digital Radio Society on 5th Generation high-speed amateur networking, and plans to deploy a province-wide network. There will be two presentations, the first an overview of the network in general, what it is, what it offers, and how to become connected, and the second on the proposed network and benefits to the club.
