Not that we need an excuse to do so but….
I would think about checking antennas, coax runs, antenna connections etc as we have a few events starting up in the very near future…
The Olympics are about to start and with this event comes the “Official Special Events Station for the 2012 Olympics… Give a listen on the bands for 2O12L. You can find more info for them on Twitter @2O12L. Their Website is ( http://www.2o12l.com/)
On the Twitter Topic I see that the the CY9M (St Paul Island DXPediton ) has assembled in VE1 land in anticipation of their trip to the Island. You can check their website ( http://www.cy9m.com ) or their twitter account ( https://twitter.com/CY9M ) for more information. As I mentioned earlier this DXPedition has an Eastern Ontario Flair to it as a couple of the Operators are from Cornwall Ontario. I am hoping to get Kevin VE3EN and Steve VA3FM in the log as it would be really neat to work an operator I know. Also it would be especially neat to work Kevin as he was one of my first contacts from the Champlain Trail activation of June 1 2008 when I was operating as VC3C.
So now you have two events to plan for….
It also give me a reminder to fix up an antenna for 6m because as you know I broke the Delta Loop on the past weekend.
