The 2013 RAC winter contest kicks off on the 28th of December, 0000Z and runs until 2400Z. Most years I do not contest this one very seriously, but I'm going to give it a good try this year. Hopefully I'll get the ever elusive VA3QV in the log this year !
I tested the ice covered antennas last night and managed a good QSO with Mark, SQ2GXO in Gdansk, Poland. They seem to be working and tuning well on all bands. Hopefully with the +1C heat wave we had today, even more ice will have been lost.
