Just got the news that Doug, VE3VS, had a successful activation of Tondern Island today.   Tondern now sets a record -  as of today Ontario has the highest number of activated islands, and Tondern becomes ON-300.

Twenty-Eight of the contacts made were on 40m and a further two contacts made on 20m.  

Well done to Doug!!!

New Activation - Wednesday, October 12th.

I’ve just received word of a late season island activation slated to happen next Wednesday, October 12th.

Doug VE3VS / VE3CWO and Rob VA3RBM will be conducting a first activation of an Ontario island.  The actual island location will depend on the weather.

Frequencies will be 7.140 to 7.160, and on 14.250 to 14.265.  This will be SSB only, no CW.

They plan on being on the air by noon and will be there for approximately three hours.
