ONTARS wishes to thank the Elmira Club

VE3ISX sidetrip visitations:
In that we were in the area, a few extra
Eye Ball QSOs were in order.

We visited Jeff VE3CV (congrats on the new call)
at his shack in Varna..nice setup Jeff!

Only a few more KMs away was Joe VA3UJ
who made Judy and I feel at home in Parkhill.

Joe showed me his recently constructed SDR radio which
he is still updating...way to go Joe!
The board generates 1 watt and is fully
controlled by the nearby computer/sound card combo.
