Cambridge amateur radio club off the air after equipment stolen, damaged (Ontario)

Cambridge’s amateur radio club is off the air for the time being after the shed where the group keeps their communications equipment was broken into.

The Cambridge Amateur Radio Club (CARC) has been connecting via short wave radio with other amateur radio groups across the country and globe for 50 years, and has a wide range of age groups who participate.
