To One and All

This year the Radio Amateurs from Western Quebec and Eastern Ontario will 
be holding Field Day at the National Museum of Science and Technology 
http://www.science-tech.nmstc.ca. We plan to place special emphasis on the 
Digital Modes and if everything goes according to plan and we can find the 
necessary people, you should be able to find  Canada's National Call Sign 
VA3RAC on all bands from 160 thru 6 meters. A special certificate will be 
struck and sent to all groups and individuals that work VA3RAC on 6 of the 
7  bands. So get your 160 and 6 meter  RTTY plans going.

All Amateurs who plan to be in the Ottawa area from the 23rd to the 25th 
are invited to drop by the Museum and meet the local amateur community . 
You may rest assured we will find something for you to do or a station to 
operate.   If you would like to visit Ottawa during Field Day, there are 
many fine hotels  and camp ground in the area,  my personal favorite 
is  the Chimo Hotel www.Chimohotel.com .

There is an  official FD2000 web site at www.qsl.net/fd2000 this site is 
accessible in both French and English. The site is currently under 
construction so place it in your book marks and  visit it often.

I would like to personally thank Ron Stailey for his assistance and 
generous offer  to allow our group to use Writelog  www.writelog.com  to 
get RTTY on the air during Field Day.

I will do my best to keep everyone up to date  with respect to our plans to 
hold a first class event on field day that will be fun and educational for 
the whole family.
