As we went to breakfast this morning Noah was putting the finishing touches on the Ark as the torrential rain fell. It soon looked more like Bangladesh during the monsoon season than Princess Street in Kingston.....of course some people were just upset because they have not had to mow their lovely and crisp golden brown lawns in six weeks.
George VE3SIQ quickly set up his 20m dipole and a 15m and 10m dipole, and after sorting out a power problem he was on the air and spotted on the DX Cluster................remember George, the black wire is ground and the red is hot!!
Many thanks must go to the guys who run the US Islands Award website for very promptly posting the announcement of our island activation. It was posted on their website within one hour of my sending the announcement to them.......and did I mention that after sending three emails, over a two week period, to the Canadian Islands Award webmaster, that we're still waiting for the announcement to make it onto their website?
In the afternoon I switched to my IC-703 and made good solid contacts with Frank EA5HJV in Spain, and Rumen LZ1MS in Bulgaria. Not too shabby for 10w SSB.
The island is a nice spot to operate from and the Lock Master was very accomodating to us. We will have to do this again!
