HMCS Haida on the air again

This from Kevin, VE3RCN…

Saturday 6th of June will be the 65th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of fortress Europe. HMCS Haida played a part in that. Haida has been radio silent for many years now. I have secured permission to operate her original equipment from 1000 – 1700 EST on Saturday. This coincides with Museum Ships on the Air weekend (just Google it…I believe USS New Jersey is the OPI).

Call sign will be VE3RCN (Royal Canadian Navy).


While operation on any amateur frequency is allowed, most ships will be operating in the General portion of the bands
