Description: The North Shore ARC, serving the Durham Region area of Ontario, is excited to be part of this year’s Aquino Tank Weekend hosted by the Ontario Regiment RCAC Museum. We will be on the air from Friday, Sep 17 through Sunday, Sep 19 during the regular Aquino Tank Weekend hours…and maybe more.
For more info: We plan on operating four stations during the event. Our CW station will operate from the WWII communications vehicle. An SSB HF station and an HF digital (FT8, FT4, etc) station will operate from within the military tents that will be provided for us. Our last station will rotate between DMR, AllStar, 2m analog on VE3OSH and, hopefully, WiresX. We plan on making this last station a roving unit that will mingle with visitors who come through our area. Basically, we are trying to make contact with this special event within the grasp of any Amateur that wants to make contact with us. All stations will be open to visitors with current COVID restrictions followed. A special QSL card will be available after the event and will be made from a picture during the actual event. We plan on using one of our club callsigns, VE3NSR, for this event and our CW station may be using a different call that is already associated with the Straight Key Century Club. Please check the website closer to the event for definitive details.
