Upcoming Island Activations

Trial Island Lighthouse
For those operators looking for some rare BC Islands, wait no more.......  In late August Hatzic Island (CN89vd) and Bowen Island (CN89hi) will be activated by Bill VE7CVQ. 

Actual dates will be confirmed by late July on this website.

During the same time period Bill will also be activating Point Atkinson Lighthouse in West Vancouver, CAN-387 (CN89ih), and Trial Island Lighthouse in Victoria, CAN-506 (CN88ij).

Trail Island has never been activated so this will be a double activation.

Let's get the word out on future activations, so please post your activation notices to: canadaradio.01 at gmail.com
