Operating from a mineral exploration camp in the tundra, 80km west of Baker Lake, Nunavut, close to the geographical centre of Canada.

My previous call sign from the arctic was VE8PW which changed to VY0PW when the old Northwest Territories (NWT, VE8) were split into the Nunavut Territory (VY0) in the eastern arctic and the new NWT (VE8) in the western arctic on April 1, 1999. As VE8PW/p I also operated from Southampton Island ( NA-007) and from King William Island ( NA-131).

If you still need qsl for these contacts please qsl via VA3DXA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My main qth for many years transmitting from the arctic.

 

Old Inuit camp near Aberdeen Lake, some 20km west of my qth. Some of the small stone towers are way markers, meat cashes, wind shelters or animal traps. The rocks are Thelon Formation sandstone, for those interested in geology.

 

Aerospatial AS 350 helicopter, the tundra taxi. This lake is great for fishing big lake trout.

The mouth of the Thelon River, one of Nunavuts most famous rivers and one of Canada's greatest heritage rivers as seen from inside a Ken Borek DHC-6 200Sr Twin Otter while approaching Baker Lake airport.. The Thelon is great for fishing and kayaking. The rivers flows into Baker Lake.  The river meanders between wide, ever changing sandbars. Typical tundra scenery on the banks.The town with the same name is visible just across the lake in the distance.

La Ronge Aviation DHC-6 Twin Otter awaits the start of another busy day in the early morning at Pointer Lake , another of my radio locations.

 

It is brutally cold in the winter with temperatures falling at times close to -50C and together with high winds can make it feel even colder. This photo shows the partly frozen coast line of Hudson's Bay.

You may send cards via bureau or direct. For direct qsl requests please note that return postage from Canada to overseas is 2 green stamps or one new IRC; US locations one green stamp please.

Using Logger 32 logging software and I upload my log to LoTW several times a month.
