VA2VL, now THE canadian mountain goat

Today, radio friend Jean-Francois VA2VL passed the 1000 points activator mark.

I’d like to congratulates JF for this outstanding accomplishment. Lot of work, efforts, energy involved and the goat title is well deserved.

Its gonna take years to see another VE getting to this level.

Félicitations Jean-Francois! And CU :wink:

Glad to read you on FB. :slight_smile:

Congrats Jean…I always enjoy working you and maybe some day we will meet up when I’m QRV in New York…


Sincères félicitations Jean-François!
When ever I see you spotted on Sotawatch, I go to the frequency because I know you always put a good signal into our side of the pond and you have the good ears to pick us up quickly.
Thanks for the many SOTA chaser points you’ve given me.
I’ll be looking forward to many more SOTA QSOs with you in the future.
