SCARC US Islands 2018 Annual Contest

On Saturday August 25th, the Annual US Island contest was held. The goal of this 15-hour long event is for hams on US and Canadian islands to work as many other stations as possible (both island and non-islands) and for non-island stations to work as many islands as possible.

This year the W7PIG effort was mounted at the QTH of Lee - K7IOC on Camano Island. The plan was to do the same in 2018 as we had done in 2016, only better. Operations were conducted on the non-WARC bands: 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, 6, 2 and 70cm. Modes included SSB, CW, PSK31. It was very hectic at times but everyone had a lot of fun with the contest! It also was good training experience. Glad we had some newcomers participate.

Participants at the "PIG-pen" (W7PIG) included: Sue - KK6SUE, Joe - WA7JT, Cathy - KI7TOQ and Lee - K7IOC.
Supporters included rovers: Jerry - W6RKE, Nairy - KG7KCD, Fred - N7KRN, Steve - AC7SG, Jason - KE7UIU, Dave - K7GYB, Robert - KA7VIF.
Others who helped us this year were: Ward - W7SXM, Dick - AH6EZ
