VA3PCJ - Another successful first activation !!

Upper Duck Island - ON-296
Congratulations to Jose, VA3PCJ, for another first activation last Saturday.  Jose successfully activated Upper Duck Island, which is now also known as ON-296, in FN25el.

Upper Duck Island is located in the Ottawa River, not very far from the Rockcliffe Airport.

This is Jose's second successful first activation in two weeks.

Once again Jose sailed the "Sassy Gaffer" to the island, rowed ashore, and setup his portable shack and antenna.   He made 33 QSO's from a total of three DXCC entities, including an island to island QSO with TF3JB, Jonas in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Hopefully Jose will now go for the hat-trick and look at activating Lower Duck Island, which is right next door to Upper Duck Island, and has never been activated.

A huge well done to Jose for another great activation!!
