The VA3OPP Amateur Radio Station is usually active in the Ontario QSO Party (which happens each April) and occasionally during other operating events throughout the year. The Ontario QSO Party was chosen as the main operating event, as its purpose is to contact as many other stations in all parts of Ontario as possible. What better way to test the communications ability of the station than to enter it into a contest? The station does not have a permanent home, but that is being worked on and hopefully will be a reality early in 2007. The planned location is at the O.P.P. Provincial Communications Centre - North Bay. Equipment has been donated to give the station HF and VHF capabilities to enable communications with other Amateur Radio Stations primarily in the Province of Ontario, but communications can be extended world wide.
