Wallpaper: Canada Day Contest 2015

2015CanadaDayNF8MBart, VE5CPU, just surprised me with a certificate for my entry in the 2015 Radio Amateurs of Canada’s annual Canada Day contest. With 10,640 points, I was first place in the 8th US call area.

I always enjoy working the RAC’s two contests each year – the Canada Day contest, always held on July 1st, and the RAC Winter Contest, usually the Saturday between Christmas and New Year’s Day. It’s among the friendliest contests and a pleasure to work our neighbours to the North (or South, if you’re in Detroit).

My score total wasn’t as high as in other years, but with the contest being on a Wednesday, there wasn’t as much activity from the States – only 126 entries.
