    Last week I was able to make a good contact to the region of NWT (Northwest Territories), Yellowknife does not have many radio op's there (maybe 3-4).
    What was kinda unique was, this is the same time frame (April) that we had made contact last year with each other on 38 lsb.



    Also going back - my last contact to Yellowknife was way back in '81.

    That’s cool!!! Furthest north I made it from here in SoCal is Saskatchewan on 38lsb. Have to admit it was a highlight for me!!

    Well now that is something that I never thought to ask him about QSLing. But I will probably have to ask him next year.

    He did say that he has only been there for 10 yrs. and that he was originally from Newfoundland.

    I forgot to mention - the contact took place right close to 9:00pm (Pacific), the Aurora oval was very close to touching the top of Washington at the time.
