Thanks to everyone for the fun afternoon on the radio from the Pacific
side of Vancouver Island.  I operated from a high spot next to sports
fields in Ucluelet, British Columbia, in grid CN78fw.  VA7EWK logged
55 QSOs on 5 different satellites.  I could not stay out there well 
into the evening, despite the late sunset, since the road off 
the coast was going to be shut down overnight for construction work.

Earlier on Tuesday, VA7EWK operated from 2 other locations - one
AO7 pass at Campbell River where I had operated from on Sunday 
(CN79jx/CO70ja - 8 QSOs), then an HO68 pass from Port Alberni on
the highway over to the Pacific coast (CN79og - 16 QSOs) later in the

Wednesday will be a light radio day.  I will head down to the 
provincial capital Victoria on thr south end of the island, then 
take the ferry over to Vancouver.  I may get on a pass or two from
Victoria, since I have never worked from grid CN88 previously.

Thursday may also be a light radio day.  I am still planning on
attending the North Shore Amateur Radio Club meeting in North
Vancouver.  Any operating would probably be from somewhere in
Metro Vancouver (CN89). Then on one of the two remaining full days
in Canada (Friday or Saturday) will be my day-trip up to 
Whistler and grid CO80. 

Good night, and 73!
