2. QSO Today Ep#373 - Paul Mower, VA6MPM


Paul Mower, VA6MPM, treks across the Canadian Rockies, often for days at a time, alone.
Faced with the prospect of being out of touch in the wilderness, amateur radio connects
Paul to the outside world when he is far beyond his cellular telephone coverage.
Paul has figured out how to travel light with maximum usability and enjoys working SOTA,
Summits on the Air, from some of the most remote outposts in the world.

3. ARRL November Sweepstakes VY1AAA Operation is On for 2021


Gerry Hull, W1VE/VE1RM, reports that he is still hoping to be able to operate remotely
as VY1AAA from Northern Territories (NT), a rare multiplier in the ARRL November
Sweepstakes (SS) event.

Hull has operated J. Allen’s station VY1JA in Whitehorse, Yukon, remotely from the US
to make the multiplier available. Allen dismantled his station and antennas last year,
but recently decided to make the station usable again. Allen reported that work is
being done to repair a vertical antenna and expand its radial set to include 20 and
80 meters. He told Hull that he would go over the station computer setup to make sure
that AnyDesk can operate the stations remotely from the VY1JA computer.

Allen is also working on primary and secondary wire antennas for the two SS events.
Hull told Allen that for him, 80 meters is a lower priority for SS and that 40 and 20
are the “meat and potatoes” bands.
