Dave Ve3DZE and Tim VA3TIC both went over early this morning on the ferry to Wolfe Island and then onto the very small cable ferry to Simcoe Island.
They had superb weather, with beautiful blue sky and a cool breeze, and not a cloud to be seen.
The bands however were not in the best of shape with the SFI sitting at 97, the A index at 11, the K index at 4, and the SN at 42.
The two of them hung in there and between them they made over 70 contacts on the two HF stations. Interesting to note that all of the contacts were either Canadian or American, no DX at all. I managed to work both of them on 20m and 40m at 0930L, and then went on to work a pile of other lighthouse who were also on the air.

I'll post our report tomorrow evening. Look for us tomorrow on 20m between 14,250 and 14.260, or on 40m at 7.250 +/- 10 Kc.
