A Little History...

On Wednesday November 16, 1921, Moose Jaw Radio Amateurs gathered together at the YMCA and formed the Moose Jaw Amateur Radio Association. With a temporary set of rules, the original members elected W.R. (Wally) Pottle as club President, Pay Bayley as Vice-President, J.E. Brickett as Secretary and A. Mathers as Treasurer. In 1922, the federal government of Canada issued the very first Canadian station license to Moose Jaw - 10AB. Our original Amateurs were able to transmit at a whopping 10 Watts which was increased to 50 Watts in 1923. This station was eventually purchased in 1933 by business men and became known as 800 CHAB and has been serving Moose Jaw and area till the present. Our Club celebrated our 101st Birthday in 2022, an event covered by Moose Jaw Today.

VE5MA HF Station

Our HF Station is located at the Western Development Museum in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. It can be found inside the Wireless Room through the Aviation Section of the Museum. The HF rig is a Yeasu FT 101, the tuner is from MFJ and the keyer is from Heathkit. The 2M rig is also from Yeasu, very old but very reliable. It will get the repeater every time, fair weather or foul - not bad considering that the repeater is about 100 feet away upstairs!

There is a lot of vintage equipment and memorabilia on display in the Wireless Room!

The members of VE5MA operate and maintain our local repeater, VE5CI, also located at the Western Development Museum in Moose Jaw.
