We are pleased to announce that club station VE3IHR will be operating this weekend, August 22/23,2020 for the annual International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend at the grounds of the Kincardine Lighthouse and Museum.
With the current pandemic restrictions in place, the lighthouse is closed but we will not let that hold us back.
We will be running our station from our mobile that will be parked at the access road that goes by the base of the lighthouse along the dock beside the river entrance.
We hope to set up our stackable fibreglass pole with the drive on flag pole base and run a 20M vertical and 40M inverted L that we have used with our event trailer.
Will operate both SSB and FT8 on this two bands.
Our operating schedule is not 100% determined yet but hope to be there Saturday morning and again Sunday morning.
Visitors are welcome as it is a public space but we ask that you observe all social protocols currently in place. We will be operating inside the cab of the truck so windows can be down to chat with folks.
We will post any updated info leading up to the weekend on our Facebook group page.
Hope to talk to you on the air!
