2022 RAC Canada Day Contest -- fun in the sun!








The club held the 2022 RAC Canada Day Contest at Peter's (VE7DNZ) farm, at the same location that we held Field Day.  The weather was good for setup on Thursday afternoon, but early in the evening there was a wicked thunderstorm which finally cleared about 10:30pm.  Band conditions were good, and contacts were made on 80, 40, 20 and 15m.  Things were still hopping when the radio was turned off at 11pm.

Friday morning the sunshine and blue sky returned, and band conditions were good on 40, 20 and 15m. 

We had some visitors from a local ranch (Colin, Michelle and their newborn baby) and Ralph (VA7VZA), Peter (VE7DNZ) and Vern (VE7VGO) came out for a picnic lunch.  Big thank you to Ralph for the lunch, and for driving Vern out to the Canada Day Contest site.
