In Pictures: VY0X – Ulituqisalik Island, NA-208

    Many thanks to Cezar, VE3LYC

    VY0X camp was located at 68o 30.96N and 89o 58.08W, on a wide sandy beach linking two land masses that are part of the same island. The locals indicated that the island name is Qimivvik, while Government of Canada maps show it as Ulituqisalik – Qimivvik being reserved for the island located to the west of it. Following the operation I learned that Ulituqisalik became the official name of this island on Jan 5, 1984, and that no request for name correction was oficially filed. Based on this information, QSL cards will indicate that this operation took place from Ulituqisalik Island (NA-208).
