Since the new VE6 Alberta SOTA Association does not go live until 01/10/2012 00:00 UTC and I intend to be up a mountain at this time, I wont be able to enter this alert (DB not available yet), so apologies if this is the inappropriate place to notify.
Walker VA6MCB plans to activate VE6/HC-015 [Grotto Mountain, 2707m (8881 feet), 6 points ] on Monday, October 1st 2012, 00:01UTC = > Sunday, September 30th, 2012, 6:01:00 PM (MDS) Mountain Daylight Saving Time.
