General. To get there you have to travel an all gravel logging road 2 hours from Port Hardy - it is about 50 miles each way. Winter Harbor is a fishing vacation town to the south also in CO50 and may have possibilities. Ocean Main (logging road) was selected since it was on a low hillside, had been clear cut some years back, and accessible. This road is the means to get to Raft Cove Park. Thin tall trees prevent an unobstructed view and the road end is becoming overgrown. For 2M this sight should work, but nothing was heard Friday night before the contest, including Tofino Coast Guard Radio. It is quite distant from civilization which may make conventional voice contact difficult. JT44 modes may be worth a try as well as meteor scatter. Setting up a schedule with Alaska may be worth trying. There are a small number of primitive campsites nearby with an outhouse all not far from water edge down the bluff.
