Club Sponsored Activities

Ralph and I (Eric) hiked Mt. Lincoln for the second time to activate the summit in the Summits-on-the-air program. Last time, two years ago, the weather was cold and wet with some hail and rain at the summit. This year the sun was hot and the day nice and warm, so it made for a more pleasant day...

For some time now, a few members of the club have been wondering how our portable vertical antennas would perform at the beach. So today we had arranged with the city to gain access to the area by the boat ramp at the far end of the west beach to deploy some antennas. We set up Brett’s Buddipole...

Ralph and Eric hiked to the summit of Sumas Mountain to activate the peak for the Summits-on-the-air program. It was a lovely day for the hike but the wind on the summit was quite strong and added a new challenge to the event. Ralph was able to make 15 contacts on 20m CW. Eric pulled out 6 on 2m...

Brett and Eric climbed Dewdney Peak to activate the summit for SOTA. The day was a wet one but despite the rain we were successful in activating the summit. With Eric's back-country truck we were able to drive to the ridge line and hike only the last segment of the standard trail to the peak....

Ralph and Eric set out at 7am to hike Zoa Peak in the Coquihalla Summit area. The drive to the exit off the highway went fairly quickly and smoothly. Then the short drive to the Falls Lake parking area. The next leg of the drive was along a forestry road that was very steep and quite washed out...
