Announcing the R.A.C. Winter Contest 2019

Announcing the R.A.C. Winter 2019 to all you Contesters and would be Contesters.

Don’t forget the RAC Winter Contest. It is a 24 hour contest that starts at 0:00 UTC to 23:59 UTC December 28, 2019. That means that because of the time difference with the 5 hour difference now for the Winter months, this actually means that we start at 7 pm local time on Friday, December 27 and go till 6:59 local time on Saturday, December 28, 2018.
This is another one of those fun contests where you get to see what the weather is like in British Columbia and Newfoundland as well as wish your fellow Canadians “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year” (or Happy Holidays if you prefer), a great contest. So let me know if you can operate a station or you can come out and relieve some operators or take a turn calling CQ. You are more than welcome to come and give it a try. If you can’t come out to lend a hand, you could always work us from home for our log.

We will be using the Club Callsign VE3DC. So for this contest, lets see if we can finish 2019 off with a bang  and make this another good one for VE3DC. Hope to see you all there. My email is ve3bk@hamiltonarc.ca

CU all there
