Laurentian Net History
3.755 Mhz LSB Monday to Sunday
as told by Grace VA3GS   March 2021

Updated 9th November  2023

I am sorry for taking so long but the truth is I really have not gathered much information about the Laurentian net.
 I have asked a few people but they were on the net only a few years before I was.
 Bill VE3 BEK told me they are using this month to celebrate 60 years of the Laurentian net.
 I do know that when I got on the radio in 1975 it was a very active net.
 We had people from Timmins and from some of the smaller places around there.
Then we worked our way down highway 11 to North Bay, a father & a son in Cobalt.
 I think at that time Tony VE3 AXW was up around Sturgeon Falls.
 There were several people in Sudbury, Espanola and Elliot lake.
 There were 3 McCourt brothers, Keith in Espanola, Jim in Elliot Lake & Ron in Wawa.
They often got together for a chat and several others might join them.  Ken Hagar was a very active ham in Blind River.
There were a couple of hams on St. Joseph Island and quite a few in Sault Ste. Marie.
I don’t remember anyone checking in from the Manitoulin at that time.
I just remember this being a busy half hour and a lot of fun, and from my time 1975 through the 1980’s conditions were very good.
 I remember hearing Ed in Shillington one time when he was doing the net.
A fellow called in from further south and he said this is Merve in Bathe, Ed said “Alright.  This is Ed in shower”.
