After an early start, and a slight delay at the border, I am now
about 20 miles or so north of Goderich, Ontario, and ready to
work various passes from the EN93dx/EN94da boundary
along Ontario route 21, just east of Lake Huron. I already
worked an SO-50 pass from here, and will work the next SO-50
pass followed by an FO-29 pass around 1700 UTC that may
cover out to England. I am operating as VA7EWK/3, and
this is how I will upload QSOs to Logbook of the World.

I think I have a receive issue in my IC-2820H mobile radio, so
I will work any further SO-50 passes with an HT or SDR
receiver for the downlink, through a duplexer to my Elk
log periodic. I have 3 HTs and two SDR receivers here, so
that should not be an issue.

I hear APRS out here, but I can't reach the digipeaters up
here. When I move away from here, maybe my track will
reappear there.

More information will be on my @WD9EWK Twitter feed,
viewable at https://twitter.com/WD9EWK for those not on
Twitter. Some rain off and on up here, and I saw snow about
halfway between Sarnia and this area. No snow is falling,
just the occasional rain. A nice day now, at 59F/15C outside.
