Listen for Special Canadian Prefixes

This year marks the 150th anniversary of Canada's confederation, and amateurs there are being permitted to use special prefixes all year to celebrate. The ARRL Letter reports that Canadian hams holding VA-prefix calls may substitute CF as their prefix. Likewise, VE-prefix hams may use a CG prefix this year; VO calls may be identified with a CH prefix and VY call sign holders may substitute CI.
