Unfortunately we received this information too late in the day to post it in time for the activation.
But it should be noted that Dave, VE3AAQ, did in fact activate Bates Island, ON283, Grid FN25 this afternoon. Dave was planning on being active from 1700 to 2000 UTC.
His rig is a FT-817 running into a Buddipole antenna system.
Let's hope Dave enjoyed himself and made a good number of contacts!
