2017 Island QSO Party Results

Here's the link to this years results for the W/VE Island QSO Party HERE.

It was nice to see a good increase in the number of Canadian logs submitted......even if it was only 5 of them, its still more than last year.  Hopefully we can keep this trend going!!

It would be great to see some participation from the East & West Coasts, all the submissions came from Ontario and Quebec.  Hmmm.......maybe a DXpedition is in the future to a lonely island off one of the coasts.

Congratulations to the winners and runners up!!
