The Winter Contest is one of the few things, along with the Canada Day Contest that RAC does correctly......in my opinion. It's always a very friendly contest, where friends take time to chat for a few minutes and pass along news and season's greetings to each other.
This year the contest runs from 0000 to 2359 UTC on December 27th, and the rules can be found HERE.
A new Heil Pro Set Elite headset found its way under my Christmas Tree this year, so I'm looking forward to trying them out in this contest. So far I like them, and the few audio reports I've had on them all seem to be on the positive side.
They are extremely comfortable and the ear pieces really do block out 90% of the background noise around the house.
Maybe VA3QV will magically appear on 40m tonight, or he may be taking Liz out dancing now that the new knee has been successfully installed......you just never know with him.......
Hope to work some of you on the bands during the contest.
