While looking for things to do radio wise while we are under this provincially mandated Covid-19 "Stay at Home Order", I actually managed to come up with a couple for this coming weekend.
As I have said before, I no longer seriously contest, but I will sit in the chair for a few hours and give out a few points, but nothing too serious.
So the big event this weekend is the Ontario QSO Party. It takes place from 1800Z April 17 to 0500Z April 18, and again from 1200Z to 1800Z April 18.
The Rules for this event can be found HERE.
I actually just found out I won a certificate for last years event. The other good thing about this weekend is that it is also the Michigan QSO Party, and most operators hand out points for both events at the same time......so you can double your fun.
The second event going on this weekend is the "Support Your POTA" activity. These are held 4 times a year and are designed to encourage individuals to get out into the parks and make contacts.
The standard POTA Rules can be found HERE.
I'm hoping to get out on my own and activate a local park. I guess if I'm by myself, I will be sufficiently socially distanced enough to keep everyone happy.
If you can't get out and do an activation, do some Park Hunting from home, we can't have a successful activation without the hunters out there looking for us.
Stay Safe Out There!!
