A note fm Bob VE4XA -
I will be using the XM4 prefix (XM4XA) on PSK mode for the authorized time
period. QSL cards will be available in July after I see how many contacts
have been made!
070 members may be interested in looking out for other special prefixes on
This just may stir up some activity for the Worked All Canada endorsement!
ALSO..I have info regarding a worked Canadian Prefix Award (not specific to
PSK mode) should anyone be interested.
