This is a tentative date, if the weather is poor or HF conditions are poor, then we will move it to a later date.
At the moment Sunday, October 20 looks like the best day for this event. Thursday prediction is rain, wind and cold.
We will setup HF antennas and equipment around 9:30am or so and contact as many stations as we can before shutting down around 3 or 4pm..
Wasaga Beach Provincial Park is a designated WWFF (World Wide Flora Fauna in Amateur Radio) site # VEFF-0426.
Also it is a BOTA (Beaches on the Air) site # BOTA-35468.
It is also hunted under the POTA (Parks on the Air) program as # VE-0426.
Bring your lunch unless you plan on eating downtown.
If you plan on setting up your own HF station, please use "shorted quarter wavelength" stubs to reduce interference to/from others operating near you. See: barriearc.com/builders-group/projects/antennas/cheap-hf-quarter-wave-stubs for more info.
