First of all I would like to thank all Lunenburg County amateur radio operators that responded to the call on Wednesday Sept. 12TH 2001 to relive other amateur radio operators after there long hours at various sites through out Halifax County which look after the stranded airplane passengers due to the horrifying incidents that took place in New York and Washington 11TH Sept 2001.
I would also like to mention to all those other Lunenburg County amateur radio operators waiting for the call if required a thank you and to know that so many are ready to go in time of need thank you again.
There will be a emergency telecommunication course put on in November this year 2001. This course will be held on a weekend and will be an all day course. This course will be open to all amateur radio operators.
The time, date and place will be given here at this site with in the next week.

NOTE - Here is the reply back from Halifax.
I just want to take this opportunity to express my personal appreciation for the extremely rapid response that my urgent call to Al generated on Wednesday. Your support was not only badly needed, as we were rapidly exhausting Halifax area amateurs who had emergency communication training, but also very much appreciated. It was truly gratifying to see how the training that the Bridgewater amateur group has received has paid off "big time". I am truly proud to be able to say I am a member of the LCARC.
Great work guys.
