RAC Bulletin 2010-041E – RAC Winter Contest 2010
The RAC 2010 Winter contest will be held from 0000 UTC to 2359 December 18, 2010.
The following stations plan to be active using the RAC call sign:
RAC Call Sponsor
VA2RAC Club Radio Amateur de Québec Inc VE2GEJ
VA3RAC Ottawa ARC at VE3CWM
VE7RAC Coquitlam, Surrey and Surrey Emergency Clubs operating on all bands at a kW
VE9RAC VE9AV in Fredericton
VY0RAC VY0AW operating on 40 and 80
One of the stations you may want to look for in particular is VE4RAC with Radio Amateurs of Canada President Geoff, VE4BAW as operator. Geoff will be operating on 20, 40 and 80 Metres.
And as a little bonus for everyone, listen for BY1RX with former RAC President Dave VO1AU manning the station.
Dave plans to be on in the RAC Winter Contest operating as either VO1AU/BY1RX or BY1RX. BY1RX has excellent antennas and a full kW. If you need BY on a new band or mode, he would be very willing to QSY.
Finally there will be an award of a RAC coffee cup to any station that contacts all the RAC stations. Please mention in your log submission if you work all the RAC stations.
