RAC Canada Day Contest, July 1 2018

Mardy VE3QEE and Parker VA3WPS last year

Field Day is on the Saturday and Sunday of June 23-24 this year with Canada Day starting at 00:00 UTC or 8 pm locally on the Saturday June 30th, 2018, a full week after Field Day, and running till 23:59 UTC or 7:59 pm locally on Sunday July 1st, 2018. This year it is on the Saturday night and Sunday, so everyone will likely have the Monday off for the holiday, so no reason not to come out, run a station, or have fun operating one we have set up. You will have all the week and till 8pm on the Saturday to recuperate from Field Day.

We will be looking for stations to be run at the contest site and work the Club Callsign VE3DC. Call me  (my number is listed) or email me at ve3bk@hamiltonarc.ca if you can help out or run a station.  Rules and information can be found in the TCA magazine May/June 2018 issue page 46 or more information on the RAC website here

Hope to see you there. If you can’t help out, at least get on the air and wish your fellow hams in Canada “Happy 151st Birthday of Canada” . Don’t forget to look for us on every band too at VE3DC on DXSummit for this event. We can always use as many contacts from you as you can give us. Let’s make it a great Canada Day 151st Birthday Event.

The online log for VE3DC is here.
