WSPR reports Canadian North West Passage

| June 2, 2017

An amateur radio WSPR, or Weak Signal Propagation Reporter Network, beacon has been installed and activated on board the vessel Canada C3. The ship departed Toronto, Ontario, on the 1st of June on a 150-day expedition to Victoria, British Columbia, via the Northwest Passage as part of the Canadian Sesquicentennial celebration. This provides an opportunity to track the vessel on its 150-day sailing voyage around the Canadian coast, which is the longest coastline in the world. The WSPR beacon identifies as CG3EXP. A live tracking link, generated by the supplier of the tracking hardware, QRP Labs, has been activated, hosted by Jeff Milne, VE3EFF. It generates a series of dots, one for each Maidenhead grid square the vessel traverses. It can be found at and much more information about the project can be found by searching for Canada C3 on the Radio Amateurs of Canada website
