Thank you to everyone who entered the Norsat and Sinclair photo contest! We received over 30 submissions from a variety of applications. All the photos submitted were great! Our two winners are….
Robert from DCI Teleports who sent us the winning photo for Norsat!
Robert captured this photo of their Norsat satellite terminal while covering the news of the earthquake in Equador in 2016. Thank you for capturing this action shot and broadcasting live updates to the rest of the world. Great job Robert!
Ron from the Yukon Amateur Radio Association who sent us the winning photo for Sinclair Technologies!
This photo was taken at Mount Decoli at 8200 feet, near Haines Junction in Yukon, Canada. This application is very demanding as the equipment is installed at a very high altitude. Thank you to the Yukon Amateur Radio Association for entering such a beautiful photo!
Again, thank you to everyone who entered our photo contest and congratulations to the winners, Robert and Ron. The winners have been notified and they will both receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
In 2005, NAV CANADA’s radar coverage of Hudson Bay was limited to line-of-sight (LOS) and did not cover the entire Hudson Bay area. The Company used VHF communication sites around Hudson Bay and HF communications for areas that were not covered by VHF. During a testing phase, the system produced a result that was less than expected as the coverage was effected by ice buildup on the antenna. Sinclair Technologies was approached to provide a high gain antenna that would be able to withstand ice buildup and to provide the expected coverage. Read more on how Sinclair solved NAV CANADA’s antenna problem.
