    dropped by to make donations and to help make contacts with amateurs

    VA3WU; Sue, KG4SUE/VE3; Peter, VE3HM; Geddie, VE3CJX; Peter,
    VE3PET and Dale, VE3LVW. Despite the less than ideal band conditions,

    Labrador. Most contacts were in the 80 meter and 20 meter bands using a
    10/15/20 meter dipole at 20 feet and a Butternut vertical for 10/15/20/40 and
    80 meters. All contacts were by voice (or phone) and using 100 watts of
