via the RSGB: Canadians mark transatlantic first

CF3BP will be operating from the York region near Toronto until 12 December 2021.

It will mark the anniversary of the first transatlantic amateur radio transmission from Canada by Edward Rogers Senior using the call 3BP.

He was one of the few amateurs to successfully transmit across the Atlantic in an ARRL-sponsored test and the only Canadian to succeed, using a 500W spark gap transmitter.

Operated by members of the York Region ARC, a schedule is available, where you can also read more about the historical event.
