VA7JPJ VHF DX-pedition to Carmanah Beach

9 Aug

WARA’s newest member JP Joly VA7JPJ obtained his call sign on Tuesday July 17. On Friday July 20, he and a friend ventured on a Field Trip via Cowichan Lake and Nitnat Lake to Carmanah Beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island. He maintained radio contact during the trip, on WARA and Island Trunk frequencies, logging his contacts along with the coordinates. Thanks JP for a great test of the North Point repeater. – Submitted by Alan VA7AWM
