Central States VHF Society

Quarter ending Dec 31, 2003

22-23-24, 2004 should you wish to extend your visit to the area. Please support the CSVHFS by booking your room under this banner - just quote the CSVHFS when booking your reservation.

You can reach the Delta Meadowvale directly at 1-800-422-8238 Monday -Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Calls outside that time frame will go to Delta's national reservation centre but they also have the details and should be able to book you just as easily.

Our family program is not yet finalized but we are planning an excursion to the Niagara Falls area on Friday July 23rd and to the Toronto core on Saturday July 24th.  More details will be available at a later date.

More information on the 2004 CSVHFS conference, including a registration form, will be available shortly at:  www.csvhfs.org/    and at    www.ovhfa.com/

We would welcome anyone interested in presenting a technical paper.  A formal call for papers will be issued shortly.  For further information please contact Bob Morton, VE3BFM, at ve3bfm@csvhfs.org

We look forward to seeing you!

Plus this most recent word from the Toronto team:


We have issued the formal Call for Papers and will include that in the mailing too.  Others should feel free to pass that info on to local reflectors.  Please let Bob Morton, VE3BFM, know if you are interested in giving a presentation.  Bob can be reached at  VE3BFM@csvhfs.org

There was a problem with the reservation procedure at the Delta that came up when one of our members tried to reserve his room.  That problem should be fixed now and the 1-800 # on the CSVHFS web site should work fine now.  As in past years, reservations are to be made by the members directly with the hotel, quoting the CSVHFS rate in the process. If they refer you back to me, let me know and we'll "fix" it again!

Tulsa Conference--Success!

This year the 37th annual Central States VHF Society conference was held in Tulsa, Oklahoma on July 24, through July 27 2003. 

140 registered for the conference and 185 attended the banquet.  We were treated to VERY reasonable temperatures for July in Oklahoma.  The hotel was OUTSTANDING!  Charlie and his team put on a FINE conference that was enjoyed by all how attended.

2004 Conference in Toronto

Greetings to all CSVHFS Members:

On behalf of the Ontario VHF Association, VE3VHF, and the Toronto VHF Society, VE3ONT, I would like to invite you and your family to attend the 38th annual Central States VHF Society conference being held July 22-25, 2004 at the Delta Meadowvale Resort and Conference Center in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

We are very honored to be hosting this year's conference, only the second time it has been held outside of the USA, and are looking forward to bringing you a top-notch technical conference, and a memorable experience for your families.

The Delta Meadowvale is one of Mississauga's premier conference centers and is located just south of Ontario's main east-west highway, the Macdonald-Cartier Freeway (Hwy 401). Those traveling in from Detroit, Buffalo, or eastern Lake Ontario will easily spot the hotel at Mississauga's Erin Mills Parkway/Mississauga Rd. exit.  A shuttle service is available for about $13 Cdn from the Pearson airport, only 15 minutes away. Travel time from Detroit is about 3 hours, and from Buffalo is about 70 minutes.

While there will be a mailing with more information issued to CSVHFS members later on, you can find out more about the Delta Meadowvale now at:

We have reserved a block of rooms at Cdn $115/night (currently about $87US), a rate which can be applied three days before and after the conference dates of July
