Ceci est un test. Après 40 ans la station VE2XPO sera de retour en ondes sous la supervision de VE2PX. ----------------- VE2XPO on the Air Again 40 Years Later: Forty years ago, in April 1967, more than 50 million people from five continents visited the Universal and International Exhibition (Expo 67), the World's Fair, in Montreal, Quebec Canada. Roland Masse, VE2PX, and the Radio Amateurs of Quebec (RAQI) set up and operated Amateur Radio station VE2XPO from Ste-Helene Island at the exhibition. Their first contact was with W1AW. More than 6000 contacts were made during the exhibition. Now, 40 years later, VE2XPO will be on the air again on all bands from July 13-29 using CW and SSB. It is planned for the first contact to be W1AW, just as it was 40 years ago. Masse, now 85 years old, and VE2XPO are looking to contact many US Amateur Radio stations. There will be a special QSL card -- QSL via Jacques Dube, VE2QK, 875 St-Severe, Trois Rivieres, Quebec G9A 4G4, Canada. Source: The ARRL Letter Vol. 26, No. 28 July 13, 2007
