Congratulations VY1AAA!  I know a little bit about how difficult it is to
keep antennas in the air in those conditions and hopefully one day VY0ERC
will be as well equipped.

We (VE1RUS, VE3KTB) will be on the air for CQWW SSB giving out zone 2 from
the very far frozen north, on NA-008, smack -dab in the middle of the
auroral oval!
