The Fort Langley National Historic Site (FLNHS) helped make history earlier this summer – for the very first time, amateur radio sent out a call from the Parks Canada location.
For the entire 2019 year, amateur radio groups have been invited to set up in parks all across the country to send broadcasts around the world and make contact with other operators.

The initiative, Canadian National Parks On the Air, is the brainchild of a small group of Ham radio operators from Halifax that wanted to help spread the country’s beauty and get people connecting. With the support of Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) and Parks Canada, the communications experiment launched in January of this year.
Surrey Amateur Radio Communications is sponsoring the local event and supplying operating equipment and our 110 foot portable tower. We invite local and visiting Amateurs to come and operate from this National Historic Site. Fort Langley is located at 23433 Mavis Avenue,
The program is described in the current issue of The Canadian Amateur (TCA) magazine: https://cnpota.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/July2019_eTCA_CNPOTA-2.pdf
