W / VE Island QSO Party

This year, I suspect due to the major flooding and lousy weather we have had across the country, has been very quiet for Island Activations.   However, coming up soon is this years W / VE Island QSO Party, sponsored by the US Islands Award.

The event runs 15 hours from 1200 UTC, 26 August to 0300 UTC, 27 August, and the Rules for the event can be found HERE on the US Islands page.

Participation by Canadian amateurs has been pretty dismal over the past few years and the disappearance of the Canadian Island Award (CIsA) website did not help.  

However, in case you don't know, out of the ashes has grown another group of guys who have formed Canadian Island Activators with the intent to carry on from where CIsA left off.

The one item the organizers do ask is that you submit your event log.  Last year only three Canadian stations did so.  

Let's try and get as many Canadian stations on the air as we possibly can for this event!!

Jump on a Ferry and activate an island!!!
