WRTC 2006 in Brazil

How the winning team worked ... Photos of PT5M Team Canada

Our station is located far north of the area. It took 3-4hrs by bus to Joinville then switched to the host's car and drove another 1.5hrs to the station. It is on the (almost) top of the 1000+ m hill and it looks, at least, more than average. It was set at the station host's country house and still under construction. No one lives there, thus, no BBQ during the contest. The team was able to concentrate to the contest.

Anyway, as the official results says, the Canadian team did an excellent job, and finished as #1 ! It is great honor for me to be a referee for winning team.  Here are some photos to show how the station looks like, how the team work hard.
