    Jeanne, VEOJS, was almost my first two QSO's with a freshly minted licence, a Butternut HF9V and a FT990. I will always remember how exciting it was when she answered. She was a great inspiration to the candidates at BCFerries that were studying for their meteorology exam. We followed her weather and discussed her track as she negotiated the highs and lows. The radio room on the SeaHorse is a little too quiet now....

    I was only able to make a contact with her one time but it was really an honor and I also enjoyed tracking her progress through her journey.

    I tried once or twice for a contact but wasn't heard very well if at all. However, I did get to hear her a number of times throughout the trip and lots of people got a chance to contact her. Sometimes conditions were pitiful and I wasn't able to make her out but did hear others talking to her. That's an accomplishment what she did.
