The Party is over…

Well now that the contest is over and I got a bit of sleep…  How much fun did you have and how good or bad did you do???

Why not drop over to our RAC Facebook Group site and leave us a comment on the Wall there .  Lets make that the soapbox for this event…

Now for this event I was the guest of the Ottawa Valley Mobile Radio Club as one of the Operators of VE3JW.  The VE3JW station is located at the Canada Museum of Science and Technology in Ottawa and is sponsored by the OVMRC

.

One of the really great things about having the chance to operate at a better station than I have at home is the fact that I hear so much more…  An 40m/80m trapped dipole that is not folded over the tree a couple of times and a tower with a 7 element triband beam… I was in heaven for this event…

A Flex 3000, a TS 2000 and a TS850 were all at my disposal…  I felt like a kid in a Candy store…

Now lots of other groups were out there for the contest and first off a big thank you to the RAC stations who agreed to cause a pile up for the event.  I think we got most of them in the log…

But I do know as we did not make any contacts in VY0, VE8 and VY1 there were at least 3 that we missed…  We heard stations in the North but unfortunately we were unable to make ourselves heard.

So if you have the time why not drop over to the FACEBOOK RAC Site and make let us know what you thought and how you did…

A fellow blogger AA1J made mention of us in a post on his blog and I thought I would share the link with you.

On a personal side of things this week will be a busy one in the VA3QV household as we finish our preps for the big day on the 25th.  I might be a little slow posting here and on the FACEBOOK accounts this week, but as my smartphone does do Twitter this is a good reason to remind you to follow  RACTWEETS on twitter.

It goes without saying that if there is any NEWS that you need to hear it will be posted immediately here, on RACTWEETS, on FACEBOOK and of course on the RAC Bulletin and on the RAC Website.

We are giving you the means to stay informed and all you have to do is pick how you want to be informed…

See you before the “Big Day”

Just remember…  The original Amateur Radio Social Media device used a “Key” and not a “Keyboard”.
