    RAC Canada Winter Contest is December 30

    RAC Canada Day Contest 2023 Results Updated: December 20

    RAC Contest Managers:
    Bart Ritchie, VE5CPU and Sam Ferris, VE5SF

    The RAC Contest Management Team is pleased to present an updated version o
    f the RAC Canada Day Contest 2023 Results.

    We would like to acknowledge a couple of errors in the results.

    * In the listing for Multi-Operator Multi Transmitter Any Authorized Power
    Level the call sign for VE6TL was incorrectly listed as VE6RL as was the
    same error in the operators list.
    * We were advised by Rob Noakes, VE3PCP, that there was an issue with
    the original scoring of his CJ3YLR entry. After reviewing we noted some f ormatting issues that were not identified which caused the incorrect scori
    ng. We have corrected his result in the Multi Operator Single Transmitter
    High Power (MOSTHP) updating his score to 17,366.

    It was certainly nice to see the solar cycle continue on its upswing, le
    ading to better conditions on 10 and 15 metres for the RAC Canada Day Cont
    est 2023. With improved solar conditions and a weekend Canada Day event th
    ere was a record 835 logs submitted – a 12% increase over last yea
    r’s record performance.

    With a total of 108,225 QSOs logged, it was not only the best entry tu
    rnout but the highest number of logged QSOs we have ever recorded! Three n
    ew records were established this year with all of them in the new assisted
    categories. Please see inside for all of the details.

    Thank you for participating in the contest! We would also like to thank al
    l of our great sponsors for continuing to support the contest and Amateur
    Radio in Canada and internationally!

    Don’t forget the RAC Canada Winter Contest (https://www.rac.ca/rac -canada-winter-contest-2023/) is on December 30. See you on the bands!
