Welcome to our newest club member!

I would like to introduce you to our newest KARC member Simon Rizzardo, VE7RIZ, from Merritt.  Simon has worked for Emcon Services with the Crushing and Heavy Haul Division for the last 21 years. This job involves a lot of travel which can see him driving all over BC and Alberta. He is active on 2m and 70cm and hosts an IRLP repeater from his residence in Merritt on 147.080+ T110.9
He is also a Transport Canada certified drone operator and holds a ROC-A certificate for aviation frequency. You will find Simon enjoying snowmobiling and off roading with his family in his free time.  As part of his work with Ministry of Transportation Simon is also well versed in the MOTI repeater system.  Simon checks into the different Nets when in Vancouver on the VE7RPT system and Northern Net when in the 100 Mile house area when at the cabin on Dempsey Lake. He looks forward to helping with work parties at Thynne Mt., Iron Mtn, and South Forge Mtn in the future.

If you hear Simon on the radio, please give him a call.
