PQ for  Quebec  become QC  , both VE2 stations I worked gave the QC
NA is set for that section, but  why the change??


At the request of RAC, ARRL changed the two letter identifer for Quebec
to QC from PQ. Canada Post had implemented the change some time ago
and the "proper" abbreviation is now "QC".

The abbreviation "PQ" is used by a political party in Quebec, hence the
change to something non-partisan
