Here's a link to the Canadian Island Activators page (HERE), that shows what's been put on the table so far......and I haven't even submitted my list yet!!
These are not IOTA islands, these have their own unique Canadian number. The link to the main page is HERE, it's well worth going over and seeing what has, and has not been, activated in your local area. Many a warm summers day has been spent on one of the local islands answering a large pileup of operators all calling for you......there's been a few cold, wet, fall days as well!

Hopefully the SFI will improve for that weekend and we have better conditions than the last contest.
Rules can be found HERE.
See you on the bands!!

15m which shows as being "poor", was actually the wide open and I managed to work half of Europe on it. Over all I made 85 contacts...so far...and of them 38 were on 15m.
20m had great propagation into the Caribbean and South America. I actually worked Bolivia and Peru today...two brand new ones for me out of the 39 countries I put into today's log.
I even managed to work Aruba and Bonaire on 10m this afternoon. Both stations were pounding into this QTH at about 20 over 9.
The only band that didn't seem to be performing as advertised was 40m. Both evenings it has not produced any real good DX, and I've managed only 8 QSO's on the band.
We will have to see what tomorrow brings and see how many more countries I can get in the log.
