The Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) Winter Contest 2021 is scheduled from 0000 UTC to 2359 UTC on December 18, 2021.  The Yellowknife Amateur Radio Society will be running a station for this contest (either VE8YK or VE8RAC).  We will use the VE8RAC callsign if no other VE8 station wants to use it - with permission from RAC of course.  Information on this contest and its rules may be obtained from:  https://www.rac.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/CanadaWinterContestRules2021_English.pdf .  For logging we typically use N1MM available at https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/ .

Note that in the Rules there is a new "Rookie" Subcategory and a plaque award.  Any radio amateur with less than 36 calendar months from being first licensed and 18 December 2021 is a "Rookie".  If interested in participating as a Rookie, please contact Chris Cameron (VE8WD).
