Canadian National Parks On The Air

Cape Breton Highlands National Park of Canada

Cape Breton Highlands National Park

Well hello hams from all over the world. Welcome to the Canadian version of working Parks and Historic Sites managed by Parks Canada. This is the brainchild of a small dedicated group of Hams in the Halifax, Nova Scotia area. We are all volunteers and we have a $0.00 budget to make all this happen.

We needed and received moral support from Radio Amateurs of Canada ( RAC ) and Parks Canada to welcome hams to come and operate at Historic Sites and Parks as listed elsewhere on this site. It is also very important to have Hams from all over the world chasing these adventurous operators  while operating in these Parks & Historic Sites.

We encourage you to consider vacationing in one of Canada’s beautiful Parks and visiting a Historic Site as Canada is blessed with a magnificent diversity of units managed by Parks Canada.

“Parks Canada is a proud supporter of the Canadian National Parks on the Air 2019 project hosted by amateur radio operators in Canada.”

Progress Report

We’ll use posts like this to bring you the latest news on the Canadian National Parks On-The-Air event.

Major work has been completed on our Web Site log file upload facility and we now support Cabrillo 2.0/3.0 and ADIF log file formats.  We’ve added support in our database analytics for dual and even triple activations.  These are locations when an activator can simultaneously activate more than one Parks Canada “Administrated Unit” at the same time.  As of October 31, 2018, there were 219 Parks Canada “Administrated Units” eligible for activation and we’ve identified over 40 locations where dual-activations may be possible.  We believe there are a few locations where triple-activations will be possible.

We’re anxiously awaiting the first confirmed triple-activation.

Stay tuned.
