For what appears to be the first Field Day of the club and likely the most creative, the Field Day was held at Anstey Arm Provincial Park.
There is no doubt that there were many hams in the Okanagan Shuswap area long before the club was formed in 1977, and it is very likely that many hams gathered together in small informal groups to work Field Day which began with the American Radio Relay League in 1933.
Somewhere around 1976, Tosh Miyagawa moved to Salmon Arm from Milk River, SK. He became acquainted with Ken Hoshowksi. Tosh suggested that some of the local hams should get together to share the hobby. Ken and Tosh came up with the idea of forming a club.
