I have seen the light….

August 7, 2012

Just got back from Braeside Ontario with VA3PCJ…  We found a great place to operate from for the ILLW Lighthouse event

Above Pic is the Sand Point Light… We plan to operate from there on Saturday August 18th

We will be running two stations each under our own calls (VA3QV and VA3PCJ) operating QRP (IC 703 and FT 817) on anything between 6m and 40m depending on conditions…  If previous years can be used as an example it will be fun and we will make contacts…

More on this as we get closer to the date…


Sunday May 31 2009 and its snowing….

May 31, 2009

This one is hard to believe but I checked into the North Bay Ontario Net on 3.768 this morning and heard that they had had snow in North Bay Ontario this morning.

Later in the morning I checked the local North Bay Nugget (on line) and they ran a small story along with a couple of pictures.  If you follow the link you will see what I mean.

As I am writing this 1230hrs eastern on Sunday I just heard Mike VA3TJP on local repeater VE3MPC saying that it was snowing in Sand Point which is just outside of Arnprior Ontario (Just north west from Ottawa).

What the heck is going on with damp, rainy and now snowy weather this time of the year…So much for Global Warming and also it seems so much for summer…
