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 in 2000.

As VE8PW/p I also transmitted from Southampton Island ( NA-007) 23.July 1993 to 25 July 1993 and from King William Island ( NA-131) from 7 July 1993 to 8 July 1993.     

From May 1981 to September 1981 I operated as DK4YA/VE8 from the mining town of Nanisivk on northern Baffin Island, IOTA NA-047.

There were also operations as DK4YA/VE8  from a qth 50mls. west of Baker Lake between June 3 1980 to Aug 28 1987 mostly during the arctic summer  months.                                                                                                   



If you still need qsl for any of the above calls 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. 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 parked along the east arm of Aberdeen Lake. This lake is great for fishing  real big lake trout with the world record of over 70lbs.

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


ICOM 735, Ameritron AL-80A,
