Multi-Contesting QRP/P from a Unique and Battered Island

Last Saturday (August 26 2017 12:00z to August 27 2017 03:00z) took place the 2017 edition of the “W/VE Islands QSO Party” (W/VE IQP) organized by the “US Islands Awards Program” ( Its timing partially coincided with the “Kansas QSO Party” (KSQP,, the “Ohio QSO Party” (OHQP, and the “Rumanian HF DX Contest” (YODX, The weather forecast being favourable, the possibility emerged for simultaneous participation in all four events (plus any non-contesting QSO that could be gleaned from the bands) while operating QRP/P from a unique little island in the Ottawa River.

Hence, on Friday August 25, 2017, shortly after 17:00 EDT, a Com-Pac SunCat 17 leisurely undocked from the Nepean Sailing Club marina and motor-sailed up-river. An hour later she was at anchor in 5-6 feet of water on the lee of Aylmer Island, a water-locked island in the middle of the Ottawa River (Grid Loc: FN25BJ35). The island had been qualified two years before ( for the Canadian Islands Activators (CIA) program ( and is identified in the CIA database as “ON295”). The short sail was uneventful but unusually choppy. Headwinds were around 5 Kts, but the waves, though not cat-pawing, were unusually large – likely because of the long fetch due to the wind blowing in the direction of the flow of the river for over 15 nautical miles (abt. 30 Km).

The aim was to spend the night at the anchor and make an early landing on the island early on Saturday morning carrying the portable station to operate QRP/P on location for the entire 15 hours of the W/VE IQP competition. Following a frugal dinner there was still time to smoke a pipe while watching the sunset.

Overnights spent swinging at the anchor are usually pretty Spartan, as bedtime is not much beyond sunset and the awakening is usually ahead of sunrise. The island offers limited protection to wind and waves, particularly because the waves refract at both ends of the island creating a crossing pattern in its lee not far from shore. Sleeping requires getting used to sudden pulls of the anchor rode from the bow, those of the dinghy painter from the stern, the dull “bottom” sound made by the steel centerboard trying to limit the swaying of the hull, and the eerie chants of the ropes inside the spars finding their resonating frequencies, all blended together by the sound of wavelets bubbling and streaming along the hull. Around midnight I popped the head through the cabin hatch. The air was fresh and the wind was still around 5 Kts from the northwest. Sassy was the only boat in the anchorage. Lights of all kinds were glittering from the shores of Lac Deschênes. Nearby, the marker in the island flashed emerald green. In the distance, towards the northeast, a red light up on shore suddenly turned green, and then yellow and red again. I concluded it had to be a traffic light (likely the one at the intersection where Québec route 148 changes from Chemin Eardley to Boulevard des Allumettières). I was unable to identify a marker light that had been a faithful companion in previous visits to the anchorage: the white light flashing Morse code “A” from the fairway buoy at the entrance of channel to the Aylmer marina was not in sight. There were no clouds and the moon had long dropped below the horizon (still too close to the Sun after the solar eclipse five days before) but the sky was not black: it had a dark-grey frosted-glass appearance (likely due to light scattering in layers of smoke that lingered in the upper atmosphere) with the Milky Way unsuccessfully trying to shine through. Nevertheless, I readily identified high above the “Summer Triangle” with the three Alphas: Alpha-Cygnus (Deneb), Alpha-Lyra (Vega) and Alpha-Aquila (Altair), and prolonging the line joining Altair to Deneb, the “W” of Cassiopeia. Reassured on where I still stood in the Universe, I went back to the warmth of the berth.

I awoke a few minutes before sunrise. As I stepped to the cockpit I looked up: a lonely osprey soared high above the anchorage. The mist over the river was lifting towards the Ontario shore. I had a quick “Continental” boat-breakfast and started to get the Sportyak ready for the landing operation. Aylmer Island is only 4 nautical miles (abt 8 km) west of the Nepean marina, in the middle of the Ottawa River, surrounded by rocks and with no landing dock. Hence, safe getting wet or beaching the boat (not an option for a Sun-Cat), the only way for reaching the island is to anchor downstream of it or on its lee and then row a dinghy to shore. Sassy’s tender is a 6-foot French Sportyak II with a polystyrene hull. Due to its two-hull design it is particularly stable. Nevertheless, transferring radio gear between the boat and the dinghy, with both rocking asynchronously in the waves, is easy compared to the transfer of my own persona – an operation that seems to get more challenging every year. This time it required some thinking and physical effort, but both the transfer and the landing were performed to satisfaction.

Once ashore, a large dog with the looks of an adult Rottweiler disliked my presence on the island and came running towards me from the tent camp on the other end of the beach. Walking slowly and speaking to it while always facing it I was able to stop its progress and then diffuse its belligerence (the fact that I was carrying the S9v42 telescopic pole in my right hand might have also been of help). Eventually, its sleepy and unapologetic owner called it back to his tent.

I chose a spot under a small elm-tree, not far from the one I had occupied for the W/VE IQP in 2016 ( I operated the Elecraft KX3 at 5W for CW and 10W for SSB, both in 40m and 20m, using the PAR EndFedZ Tribander held vertically by the S9v42 telescopic pole leaning against the elm. All CW exchanges were manual with the Palm Single Paddle in Yambic mode, except for the SKCC contact for which it was switched to straight-key mode. WX was sunny (in spite of the smoke haze from the fires out West) and I was able to operate akmost without interruptions for about 7 hours (8:15a to 3:15p EDT).

Most of the 48 QSOs logged were in the OHQP and the KSQB but there were a few nice surprises:

  • Genesee Radio Club Special Station W8ACW in MI celebrating the 40th Annual Crim Festival of Races.
  • David WA3GIN in VA holding the ECARS Net frequency (7.255 MHz), who took the time to record and play back my transmissions and helped improve the audio of the KX3.
  • SKCC CW QSO with Curt WA2JSG, SKCC Nr. 3018S.
  • SOTA QSO with John N0TA calling CQ from W0C/FR-073 Redskin Mountain, CO,
  • POTA QSO with Mike W8MSC operating portable from KFF-1544 Tahquamenon Falls, MI,
  • And five precious contacts island-to-island with W/VE islands participating in the W/VE IQP:
    • Andy K2ADA in FL043S (Merrit Is.),
    • Bruce N4STG in GA044L (Latham Is.),
    • Ray W8RD FL017S (Honeymoon Is.),
    • Scott KM1MM in AL002S (Dauphin Is.) and
    • John CG3ISE in ON007 (Henley Is.).

W-VE_IQP 2017_02

Logs have been submitted already for the W/VE IQP (48 QSOs), the KSQP (10 QSOs), the OHQP (27 QSOs) and the YO HF DX contest (2 QSOs). The SKCC contact was with an SKCC Senator not contacted before, and the SOTA contact was worth 2 summit-chasing points in the SOTA database.

I had hoped to stay on the air longer, but Aylmer Island tends to get pretty wild on Saturday nights in the summer, and I decided against spending a second night in the anchorage. So, around 17:00 EDT Sassy weighed anchor and motored back to her slip in the Nepean Sailing Club, this time in lighter winds and smoother seas than the day before.

As I was about to leave the anchorage a hydroplane started circling above. It eventually water-landed and taxied to the beach south of the island: it was the Seabee Robinson Special 003 “CF-EVE”:

A word on the island – Aylmer Is. is a rare small rocky island in the middle of the Ottawa River, within a section of the river where most other islands are mainly alluvial. It has no docks and its only amenity is an old “thunderbox” surrounded by poison ivy. Before the advent of Europeans the island was a burial ground of the Algonquin people inhabiting the Ottawa Valley. Human remains were found while excavating the foundations for the lighthouse (, and their descendants may still have a legitimate claim to the island as well as to the rest of the valley (, Later, the island was chosen as the site for a wooden lighthouse whose original wood structure can be seen in the background of a historic photograph taken in 1899 ( In modern times it was replaced with a lateral marker, currently with a sun-powered light that flashes green. The original lighthouse is listed as “Historic CAN867” in the ARLHS World List of Lights (, while the modern marker light is identified in the official “List of Lights, Buoys and Fog Signals” of the Canadian Coast Guard “Notices to Mariners (Notmar)” as light Nr. 1299 ( At the top of the promontory on the north side of the island, close to the site where the original lighthouse would have existed and human remains had been found, is a Canadian Geodetic Survey marker. It is still fully recognizable in spite of having been earnestly disfigured. A similar fate seems to have been followed by the broken helicopter landing-pad, once used by the Canadian Coast Guard attending the light. The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat used to list Aylmer Island as “Crown owned” with “Fisheries and Oceans Canada” being its “Custodian”. However, in a 2010 document, the Ottawa City Council ( proposed the correction of an “anomaly in Zoning By-law 2008-250” by which “The Official Plan designates the island as Natural Environment Area. Therefore the island should be zoned EP – Environmental Protection to reflect the intent that no development should occur on this island.“. On Saturday, two different specimens of Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexipus) were seen flying to the island from the Quebec side. After resting and having a drink along the south shore of the island, they proceeded south crossing to the Ontario shore, likely starting their momentous journey to Mexico ( Hence, Aylmer Island may serve as an initial stepping-stone for the migration of Monarch butterflies.

However, the island – clearly a fragile ecosystem – is in deplorable condition. Isolated islands often offer the feeling of unrestricted freedom, and people, particularly young people, camp and party in the island leaving behind smoldering fires, empty cans, broken bottles and many other types of residues. Since the island lacks garbage bins as well as a regular garbage collection schedule, all this material lingers in the beach and other parts of the island waiting for a flood that would cause it all to stream downriver to pollute other shores or reach the Sea. Dogs are regularly brought to the island unleashed, leaving behind samples of their digested meals. I have witnessed large pontoon boats ram the island and once beached, unload dogs and humans, some of these with obvious signs of being under the influence. Visitors to the island constantly create new fire-pits for their bonfires by digging the gravelly sand and moving around big pebble-rocks smoothened by the passage of the glaciers. All this would hardly happen were the island not a small piece of water-locked land, but part of the Ontario mainland. And at every visit I cannot help but ponder what is that could be done to improve on such sorry and undeserved state of affairs.



Radio Qualified Ontario Islands within the National Capital Region

An article posted a month ago ( referred to the Ontario islands in the National Capital Region (NCR) that had not yet been qualified for the Canadian Islands Activators Program (

According to the rules of that program: “Qualification is the initial, first time operation from a Canadian island authorized and numbered by the Webmaster. […] In order to qualify a new Canadian island a minimum of 25 contacts including at least 2 different DXCC entities is required. […]Activation is any subsequent operations from a qualified Canadian island [… and] there is no minimum number of QSOs required for an activation.” (

Which means that any island previously qualified is readily available for activation,for example, during the “W/VE Islands QSO Party” ( whose 2017 edition will take place within two weeks: 1200z 26 August – 0300z 27 August, 2017. This begged the question as to which Ontario islands in the NCR had already been qualified for the program. Hence, the entire Ontario database of qualified islands ( was searched for islands in Grid Locators FN15 and FN25, and the Ontario islands within the boundaries of the NCR ( were retained.

This analysis yielded the following twelve islands (those followed by an asterisk are water-locked and hence not accessible by road):

  • ON119   N. Petri Is. (FN25gm)
  • ON120   S. Petri Is. (FN25gt)
  • ON121   Porter Is. (FN25dk)
  • ON122   Green Is. (FN25dk)
  • ON123   Victoria Is. (FN25dk)
  • ON124   Morris Is. (FN15uk)
  • ON277   Maple Is. (FN25dk)
  • ON283   Bates Is. (FN25cj)
  • ON295   Aylmer Is. (FN25bj) *
  • ON296   Upper Duck Is. (FN25el) *
  • ON297   Rideau Is. (FN25dk)
  • ON301   Clarence Is. (FN25jn) (see note below)

Here are two maps indicating the location of each of these islands (the dotted rectangle in the first map corresponds to the area shown in the second):

Note: Clarence Island (ON-301) is to the East of the City of Ottawa, within the City of Clarence-Rockland in Prescott-Russell United County, which the Canadian Census considers to be part of Canada’s National Capital Region (


Messabout for Two at Horaceville

Messabout Aug 7-8 2017

The “Ottawa Small Boat Messabout” ( had called for a messabout in Pinhey Point on August 5-6. However, the weather-provider had other plans. Fortunately a window of opportunity opened a day later for an August 6-7 overnight. Unfortunately, this reduced the number of participants to only 2: “Woodpecker” and “Sassy Gaffer” (others may have shown up on the second day after Sassy’s early departure, see the page above for more details). Woodpecker wanted to try her new and flamboyant jug-rig sail, and Sassy wanted to try a new HF antenna for portable-afloat: a monoband 20m PAR EndFedZ rigged as an inverted “V” up Sassy’s mast.

The two boats sailed to Pinhey Point on Sunday on favourable winds of 5-10 kts in a very enjoyable starboard tack broad-reach and arrived at the cove almost together (actually, Woodpecker got there first, on account of the comparative ease with which its beautiful and well crafted junk-sail can be doused in comparison to Sassy’s cat-gaff rig).

By all accounts Woodpecker’s rig and new sail were a big success in the light breezy winds. The test with the 20m PAR mono-band was also deemed a success after allowing a QRP/PAF (portable-afloat) contact with Ed KP4DF in Aguadilla, PR.

Quite appropriate given the geography of the cove, the wind subsided and shifted to the SW during the night, and then to the NW during the morning of Tuesday for another nice and leisurely broad reach to the marina. However in the early afternoon the wind picked up with gusts above 20 Kts., which is more that Sassy can comfortably enjoy without a reef. Nevertheless after a few gybes in Lac Deschênes, she was again safely moored at her dock. Woodpecker, sailing a few hours later, found the winds to be a perfect match for her new sail design.


Clarence Island ON-301 – A Qualifying Success

Clarence 04

The forecast was for strong westerlies and possibility of storms, even some tornado warnings for the area. However, the possibilities of getting the required QSOs to qualify Clarence Island hinged on being able to participate in the North American QSO Party ( taking place 1800 UTC (2:00PM EDT) August 5 to 0600 UTC (2:00AM EDT) August 6, 2017. This was a strong reason against postponing the expedition.

From a recent visit to the island I knew that it was not as flooded as had been in early May (see bottom picture in the following composite) when the water level in the river was over 2 meters above datum:

Clarence 01

The Jeep CRD made the journey from Ottawa to the island in less than hour, even while taking the long route across the backcountry east of Ottawa, so as to avoid road traffic as much as possible. I decided to operate from a small area at the west tip of the island and the PAR EndFedZ Tribander was rigged up the S9v42 telescopic mast leaning against the trunk of likely an elm-tree, right behind the Jeep. The S9 mast is slightly longer than the antenna and the matching box hanged a foot above the ground and was wrapped in a plastic bag to prevent it from getting wet in the rain. Radio operations were started from the top of a bolder beside the car, but were soon transferred to the back seat of the vehicle when the wind picked up and the rain started.

Clarence 02

During the 6 hours that HF radiated from Clarence Island 36 stations were logged in two DXCC’s (W and VE). Two contacts were island-to-island and two were portable-to-portable, some may have been 2-QRP contacts: most of the QSO’s were in the NAQP CW, but four were not: one was a very nice and long CW QSO I was able to have with Bob KB2BSF in Staten Island, NY (island-to island). The second one was with Joe N2CX, operating /P (portable-to-portable) from POTA KFF-2032 (Chenango Valley State Park) also in NY State. The third was an SSB QSO, which took some effort to complete, with the group activating Barnegat Bay Lighthouse in Long Beach Island (IOTA NA-111) (another island-to-island). Then, it was 2:00 PM EDT and the “CQ NA” started to be heard in the CW portion of the bands. Eventually, a fourth non-NAQP QSO was logged: also portable-to-portable, with Ian N9XG who was activating a SOTA peak (SOTA W9/UN-002, Jackson County HP, IN). The first 25 QSOs were all with US stations but number 26 was with Brian VE3MGY from Sparta, ON which added the much needed other DXCC for validating the “qualifying”. Then I also was able to add to the log a “RAC Canada 150 Award” station: Summer VE5RAC in SK.

A Cabrillo log has been submitted for the NAQP CW claiming 32 QSOs and 16 multipliers for a total score of 512 points for the VA3PCJ Single-Op All-Bands QRP/P station.

In an effort to conform to the self-imposed principle that every island should be reached (or exited) by boat, I took the “Ecolos” ferry for a pleasure crossing to the town of Thurso on the Québec side.

Having thus successfully contributed to rename Clarence Island as “ON-301” for the future enjoyment all “VE Island Activators”, after a short stop for coffee at my son’s place in near-by Rockland, it was time for the Jeep to hit the road again and get back to Ottawa. The APRS track broadcasted by the TH-D72A is next:

Here are further pictures from Clarence Island:

Clarence Island – A Qualifying Attempt

This Saturday I’d like to try “qualifying” Clarence Island (FN25JN09) for the Canadian Islands Activators (CIA) Program ( The island is on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, between Rockland and Wendover. Last May it was underwater but it has since resurfaced and is accessible by road. “Ecolos” is an electric cable ferry that operates from Clarence island to the town of Thurso on the Québec side of the river ( The main deterrent for a stay on the island are the fumes from the Thurso Pulp Mill across the river, but this should not be a problem with winds forecasted to be from the SW.

The plan is to get to the pic-nic area on the island early in the afternoon to operate CW QRP/P with the KX3 and the PAR Tribander or the W3EDP Jr.. Twenty-five QSOs with stations in at least two different DXCC’s is what is required for an island to be “qualified” and I am hoping that participants in the NAQP CW will contribute to fill the log. Once (and if…) “qualified” the island will become “ON-301” and will be available for future activations within the CIA Program ( i.e., for the W/VE Islands QSO Party in Aug. 26 2017).

If all goes well, my position will be showing in APRS (VA3PCJ-7). I may also be able to Tweet QSX info in real-time (@VA3PCJ). QSL will be only via LoTW and eQSL(AG) (i.e., no QSL cards).



Surfing the Bands in “Mer Bleue” – QRP Byke-Portable

Finally August happened, and it did it with a sunny day. I decided to go for a few hours of “HF from the Park” and pay a first visit this season to the woods in the western end of the “Mer Bleue” conservation area – with an added a twist: I decided to ride on the bike. I often thought about biking to “Mer Bleue” but I never attempted it mainly because of the lack of bike-paths and narrow shoulders on Walkley Rd. beyond the bridge over Highway 417.

Though a bit shaken by the many cracks and holes on Ridge Rd. – a country road badly abused by commuters looking for a shortcut – the Nishiki (1977, “Shields Nishiki”, “Custom Sport”, “Made by Nakamura”, serial Nr. CG02646, where the “C” is for “Canada” and the “G” is for the last “7” in “1977”) and I reached Anderson Rd. and Ridge Rd. in good spirits. I set the operate CW QRP/P from a pic-nic table on the shade, where I was quickly swarmed by a resident crew of determined Culex pipens, and had to call on DEET (“deet” not “dit”… – SRI couldn’t resist) to keep them at bay, since West Nile Virus is now “endemic” in the Ottawa Valley (

Cycle Ham

I used a small fishing rod to get the PAR EndFedZ “Trail-Friendly” tribander up a tree. The background noise in the KX3 was almost nonexistent. But so were the CQ calls: nothing in 20m, nothing in 40m and also nothing in 30m and 17m (yes, the KX3 ATU can tune the tribander in those bands too). Then, with the preamp on, in 20m I was able to hear CQ’s from Hungary, Mexico and Aruba. However, the QSO that saved the day was one with Dusan S51KD calling CQ from Cerklje ob Krki in Eastern Slovenia.

After a couple of hours I decided it was time to let the old Nishiki try her dodging skills in the cracks and holes on the other side of Ridge Rd.

I had hoped to be able to see a detailed APRS track broadcasted by the TH-D72A. However, a rubber-ducky antenna at belt height does not seem enough to reach the local APRS relay stations, and only three points were acknowledged in the APRS map (see attached picture where it is overlaid on the actual route).

In the end, the 40-year old Nishiki and myself had rode together 13.6 more kilometers. This does not seem much until one realizes that the “Shields Nishiki” and myself have been together for a long time and our ages add up to way beyond 100 years.

It is sad to see a picturesque rural road such as Ridge Rd. so much deteriorated by its frequent access by cars and trucks (in spite of signs limiting tonnage). It is also a shame that no bike paths or wider shoulders exist on Walkley Rd. west of Highway 417, on Ramsayville Rd. and on Ridge Rd., all the way to the “Mer Bleue” boardwalk (

The Log of a “Presto-Style” Eight-Hour Sailing Adventure

Image OC Transpo Sailing.jpg

On July 17, “Sassy’s” land-auxiliary (i.e., the CRD Jeep) was being called for other portaging duties, but no so its regular old driver. Yet, the weather was inviting for a sail up-river. I reached into my pocket and there it was… the “OC Transpo” “Presto” card. What follows is the actual log of the eight-hour “Presto”-style sailing adventure that ensued (the asterisk (*) indicates each time the “Presto” card was being put to use):

  • 14:10 EDT: walking to the bus stop at Elmvale Plaza
  • 14:18 EDT: hop on 86 to Baseline*
  • 14:29 EDT: taking picture from the bus of new structures in Hurdman Station
  • 14:38 EDT: at Laurier stop
  • 14:45 EDT: hop on 97 to Bayshore*
  • 15:28 EDT: at Bayshore bus terminal and walking across Haydon Park to the NSC
  • 16:20 EDT: at the docks in the marina at the NSC
  • 16:49 EDT: undocking and motoring out the marina
  • 17:15 EDT: on full sail in 5-10 Kts East Wind (heading: 315ºM)
  • 17:19 EDT: taking picture of the Sun through the clouds
  • 17:30 EDT: Abeam of the K4 marker, turning around and tacking back a few times
  • 18:25 EDT: dowsing sail and motoring towards the marina
  • 18:55 EDT: moored back at the docks
  • 19:30 EDT: leaving the boat
  • 19:39 EDT: taking picture of a Samuel-Adams floating over the docks
  • 20:25 EDT: leaving the NSC and walking to Bayshore bus terminal
  • 20:31 EDT: taking picture of the NSC at sunset from Haydon Park
  • 20:56 EDT: hop on the 97 to the Airport*
  • 21:28 EDT: at Laurier station
  • 21:35 EDT: on the 86 to Hurdman*
  • 21:40 EDT: at Hurdman station
  • 21:48 EDT: on the 86 to Elmvale*
  • 22:00 EDT: at Elmvale Plaza, walking
  • 22:10 EDT: showering.

My fellow commuters would have had a hard time trying to guess where I was going or coming from, and so would have the boaters on the river with whom “Sassy” crossed wakes…


Feeling the Magic – 6m Contesting QRP-Portable


Over the weekend I tried my luck in the CQWW-VHF Contest. I operated only in the “Magic” 6-meter band”, QRP/P, from the backyard of the QTH (FN25ej): Icom 703 @ 5W & the Buddipole at 16Ft. The key was the Bencher BY-2. Contacts were logged with only three stations, all within 30 min on Saturday at dusk (close to 00:00z):

  • VA3SY (ON, FN25nn), CW at 62 km (38 miles), bearing 72 degrees.
  • WB4WXE (AL, EM74dm), SSB at 1,473 km (921 miles), bearing 219 degrees.
  • K4PI (GA, EM73oq), CW at 1,515 km (947 miles), bearing 214 degrees.


At the QTH and with the equipment used, the band remained closed for most of the duration of the contest. The stations worked were the only ones heard.

Scanning the band to hear only the background noise and the occasional steady spurious signal was not too enchanting. Hence, while still monitoring the 6m band in the 703, the 706MKIIG was fired-up on its side, and 40 QSOs were logged in the NAQP-RTTY in the 80, 40 and 20m bands.

The background noise in 6m was very low, except for Sunday morning where it raised close to S5 to later decrease back to zero around noon. It is possible that this might have been due to the arrival in the early morning of a CME announced in “Geomagnetic storms are underway on July 16th following a CME strike at 0545 UT.


“Radio-Virgin” Islands on the Ontario side of the National Capital Region


Quite surprisingly, within the Ottawa National Capital Region, there are numerous islands that still await qualification within the “Canadian Island Activators” program ( Some of them may be private or off limits and others may have further integrated to the “main land”.

Here, identified by name and Grid Loc. position, are all those on the Ontario side that  I was able to find to date (there can be more). They are all properly named and positioned in maps or charts available in the web. Some are “water-locked” but some are readily accessible by land:
