2012 marks the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. There are lots of festivities taking place over the next few months to commemorate it. The Manotick Amateur Radio Group is going to be operating special event station VX3W from Fort Wellington National Historic Site in Prescott, Ontario on Saturday, May 19th from 10:00 to 16:00 EDT (1400-2000Z). We will be operating on various bands and modes, depending on the conditions. Any station making contact with us is welcome to send a QSL card and a postage stamp (if in Canada) or an IRC for anywhere other than Canada. Any cards received without return postage will be sent via the Bureau.
MARG has set up a page on their website (http://www.ve3rix.ca/vx3w.php) which will be updated with more information as the date approaches. In addition to the page, there’s also a VX3W forum linked to from the info page and you can follow @VX3W on Twitter, too.
Hope to hear you on the air!
