Clifford Allen Island

WX permitting, on Saturday Aug 19, Jose VA3PCJ, may try to qualify "Clifford Allen Island” (Grid Loc. FN25DJ72) in the Rideau River (near Billings Bridge Mall).   This island has never been activated before.

The Island is "water-locked” in the Rideau River - not far from the river shore. Jose may try to launch upriver and paddle to the island in a canoe or kayak. 

If he manages to make a landing he will likely operate his  KX3 and possibly the Buddipole or the PAR EndFed Tribander and operate both CW and SSB mostly on 40m.

Then, for the W/VE Islands QSO Party the following weekend, also WX permitting, he may plan a return to Aylmer Island ON295. Otherwise, Clarence Island ON301 or Rideau Island ON296 are possible alternates.
