ve7dxg at rac.ca

The VA7ISL contest group will once again head up to the "Perch" in CN88bv on
Southern Vancouver Island.
We'll be QRV on 6m through 2304 and on 10GHz. We'll have 100W and long Yagis
on the low bands and a few Watts on microwaves.
The primary goal of the operation is to outscore VE3WCC and get first place
multiop in Canada.
We are always looking for more operators, if you're interested, come and
join us! We'll have VE7DAY, DXG, JOX, SLZ and VA7AJK on the hill. Bunch of
really cool guyz. You don't have to bring anything, we have it all.
This time we will actually turn on the903+ gear on Sunday, so if you're in
the Puget Sound area and want to go out somewhere we'll be looking for you.
The access road is still snowed in, but the torrential rains predicted
should wash it away by contest time.

> Members of the West Carleton Amateur Radio Club of Ottawa will

> population centers of Ontario, Northern New York State and beyond.
> This will be out third year of operating from this site.
> As for last year's contest the group will operate all bands from 6M
> through 1296 MHz. This year we will run higher power (700w on 6m and
> 2m). We will also use a 5.8GHz telephone system and Ramsey laser kit
> for relatively nearby communications as well as 10 GHz wideband FM
> using a Tellurometer but no narrowband 10GHz. We scored the highest
> number of points of any Canadian operation last year and hope to do
> even better this year from the relatively rare grid square.
> We will also be able to operate WSJT at 2 and 6m and hope for more
> contacts with our higher power. Schedules are very welcome! Please
> send your sked request to <VE3XRA (at) rac.ca>.
> Rovers who will be within range are asked to forward their rover
> schedules. Please include the grids squares and approximate times
> you plan to be in each, a list of bands you are able to operate, and
> the co-ordination frequency you will use. Those rovers who will
> actually pass through FN04 are very welcome to stop by for a snack
> and hot coffee - directions to our location can be sent by e-mail
> upon request. As well, a limited number of 10 GHz Tellurometers will
> be available for loan to rovers. We will be located near the
> intersection of 4 grids, so this could be quite profitable in terms
> of QSOs!
