Special Call Signs in Honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Special Call Signs in Honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee:
Available from May 15 to July 14, 2022

For immediate release:

In 2022, Canada is celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, marking her 70th anniversary on the Throne. She is Canada’s longest reigning Sovereign and the first to celebrate a platinum jubilee.

To mark this historic milestone, a series of initiatives are taking place throughout Canada to honour The Queen’s service and dedication to this country and celebrate Canadian achievements of the last seven decades.

Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada has approved the use of special call signs from May 15 to July 14. These dates correspond to the early summer busy operating season and will be available to all Canadian Amateurs who wish to use the special call signs on all occasions in including Field Day, the June VHF Contest, the RAC Canada Day Contest and the IARU World Championship.

To use the special call sign, substitute the prefix normally assigned to your province or territory by the special prefix shown in the following table. For example, VE3 becomes VX3, VA7 becomes VG7, and YV2 becomes XK2, and so on.
