Special Event Station CF3VEDAY - Canadian War Museum

April 8, 2005

Industry Canada has issued an authorization to Bob Cooke, VE3BDB, to operate May 7 to 14 inclusive using the special event call sign CF3VEDAY.

The authorization is to mark the opening of the new Canadian War Museum on May 8, 2005, a date that coincides with the 60th anniversary of VE-DAY, which ended World War Two in Europe.  The special call sign is historic in that this is the first time that an Amateur Radio call sign having a five-letter suffix has been issued in Canada.

VE3BDB and other members of The Wireless Set No. 19 Group will alternate modern equipment with vintage WW II era military radios during the seven-day operation.
