We Have a Winner
VE4PEH GETS 1st Place in CLARA CHATTER PARTY 2015
By Pete Haertel VE4PH
Please find attached, a little thing I wrote for the Newscaster, Winnipeg Amateur Radio Club newsletter, to be published in April
"I never imagined that I had even the slightest chance of getting in the top 10 never mind First Place" said Pat in total amazement when she received this certificate in the mail. She was not even planning to participate but was encouraged to try by myself.
Pat made the contacts and I did the logging using our modest little station consisting of an Icom IC 7100, Ldg 100 tuner and Hustler 5btv vertical antenna with only 2 radials per band.
There will be the 2016 Clara Chatter Party coming up and Pat will be certain to be a willing entrant. The Chatter Party type of contest is more "gentler" than just giving call-sign, signal report etc ~ the ladies get to ragchew.
Thank to hubby Pete VE4PH for sending in this article for CLARA.
