That was an escape from noisy Metro Vancouver to do IOTA NA-075 (Galiano Island)
activation and have fun in the contest at the same time. I was really amazed how
well it could be done with just Spiderbeam @33 ft mast and vertical wires shot
to the tree with MFJ998RT auto tuner for 160-40 m. 

I do understand that I caused some problems with /7 call sign as nobody
expected that. I did my best to make sure my call was received right during my
S&P, but I am confident that there are a lot of just VE7ACN calls in the
logs during my run. Won't do it again. However, there are a bunch of happy IOTA
chasers who got me in the contest.

Being spoiled for years with Big Gun stations RT0C (former UK0CAA, RZ0CWA,
RW0CWA)and VE7UF I had a feeling that I have huge station in my posession
again. I fact it was a 'suitcase' DXpedition rig and antennas travelled to
J3/VE7ACN, VP5/VE7ACN, KL7/VE7ACN, AL3/AA7CH, NL6/AA7CH and Canadian Islands.

73, Mike VE7ACN - RW0CN - AA7CH
