World Amateur Radio Day 630m Activity!

The IARU has designated April 18 UTC as "World Amateur Radio Day". 
Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) is participating with a special event. 
There will also be two 630m stations operating! Both will use the call VE7RAC, one on JT-9 (VE7VV) and one on CW (VA7MM). 
The operation schedule is:
 JT-9 transmit on about 475.2 kHz: 0300 to 0600 hours and 1100 to 1300 hours UTC
CW transmit on 473 kHz and receive 473 kHz plus cross band 3528 kHz and 7028 kHz: 0300 to 0600 hours UTC.
If you have been interested in 630m but can't transmit on the band, then PLEASE try and work VE7RAC via crossband. This means that you can call VE7RAC (who will be CQing on 630m) on either 80 or 40m CW and he will respond if he hears you. Working crossband can actually be great fun!
RAC will provide a certificate for stations working either of the VE7RAC stations.
