United Radio Bureau will manage the QSL cards for the SES station CY2ZT/2 150th Anniversary of British Columbia.Steve Toupin, VE2TKH will be active throughout October & November.
I will let Steve tell you more about it….
“2008 marks a very special anniversary in British Columbia: 150 years of cultural diversity, community strength and widespread achievement since the founding of the Crown Colony of British Columbia in 1858.
On November 19, 1858, the new colony’s governor, Sir James Douglas, read the official proclamation that cemented one of the most significant events in B.C.’s history. Arguably, if it hadn’t been for that moment, Canada may not have extended from coast to coast and B.C. might not be the strong, vibrant, united province that it is today.
There are many things to celebrate. From the contributions of Aboriginal peoples, to the stories of the pioneers who followed the gold rush and set down roots here, this is a time to honour the diversity and widespread achievements of the people who built this province, while also setting our sights on all of the opportunities that the future holds. As a proud Canadian ham and with great souvenirs from my trip to BC back in 2001, I decided to join the celebrations with that unique S.E.S. callsign. 73 de Steve.”
