 RSARS Activity from Canada

One of our members in Canada, Fred VE9UN 1246 will be Celebrating Canada’s 150th year of Confederation – 01 Jan to 31 Dec 2017. For this he will be operating as CG9UN with a RSARS AFF number, effective from 04 March until 31 December 2017. Fred will also have his other callsign VE9SIG F029 which he will make available to members if wanted. He will initially be operating PSK31 which with only low power of 25 watts being the norm this mode is ideal for our Foundation and Intermediate members as 10 watts is good enough. In due course he will also operate SSB at 100 watts. So for clarity:

CG9UN F??? until 31 December 2017
VE9SIG F029 always available

Cards from Fred, if wanted, will be sent as PDF via email direct. An example (RSARS 1246) is shown on his qrz.com page. A Copy of Fred’s QSL Card is shown below.

Good hunting and if any advice needed about PSK31 just ask for there are one or two of us about who use it.
