VA2GNQ is the station callsign of retired canadian navy submarine HMCS Onondaga. Club radioamateur du Saint-Laurent VE2CSL of Rimouski, Quebec has been asked to take on the project of restoring the radio room onboard Onondaga and to put the submarine back on the air. The best way for visitors to truly experience the magic world of submarine radio communications is to put Onondaga back on the air. There will be regularly scheduled events and simulations during which volunteer Ham Radio operators will operate the radio equipment in the radio room. In memory of Onondaga’s old radio call sign CGNQ, radio operations will be carried out in the Ham Radio bands under call sign VA2GNQ. Upon completion of this project, submarine Onondaga will be joining other submarine and ship museums presently “on the air” around the world.
