The Victoria-Haliburton Amateur Radio Association serves the amateur radio needs of it's members and the City of Kawartha Lakes as well as Haliburton County.

The Association is open to all Amateur Radio operators and SWL's interested in promoting the Ham Radio hobby.

 

The Association owns and operates two 2 meter FM voice repeaters, VE3LNZ (located in Grasshill) and VA3MIN (located in Eagle Lake). In addition we offer a Packet Radio Node (VE3LNZ),  APRS Station (VE3LNZ-3)  and an IRLP Node. General meetings are held once a month on the last Tuesday of the month (excluding July and August) at the City of Kawartha Lakes  Police Department Building, Community Services Room, in Lindsay. Meetings start at 7:30 PM. Guests are always welcome so drop by for one of our meetings and see what we're all about!

Social events are held throughout the year including Field Day, Fox Hunts and picnics. In the past, some of our community service events have included Talk To Santa By Ham Radio Day (in the Lindsay Square Mall), participation in the Lindsay Santa Clause parade, JOTA (Boy Scouts Jamboree On The Air) and school presentations to all ages on the hobby of Amateur Radio.
