1) This vessel was one of 18 Bangor Class Minesweepers that were to be refitted and sent to Korea. Their pendant and the call sign assigned for this deployment are listed here. It is not their previous pendant or call sign. Only two ships were commissioned and only as training vessels for a short period - HMCS KENTVILLE and HMCS MINAS.
2) This vessel is spelled incorrectly in ACP113. She was named for Sidney, B.C.not Sydney, N.S.
3) SEA CLIFF was originaly assigned CYVL then reassigned as CYTG. The CYVL call was then re-assigned to PINE LAKE.
4) SECHELET was CGJA when in commission from February 1991 to October 1996 and was assigned CGSE when she commissioned again in February 1997.
5) HMCS TRURO was RCMP HERCHMER from August 3rd, 1945 until August 6th, 1946 but was not commissioned. She was converted to the commercial vessel GULF MARINER in 1947 with call sign VYVM and was scrapped in 1964.
6) ex HMS Cygnet. Call sign GVKB
7) Was converted to a weather ship. When she finished that role, the ship became CCGS Stone Town, call sign CGGP.
8) When she finished as a weather ship, she became CCGS St. Stephen, call sign CGGR.
9) Was converted to a weather ship. When she finished that role, the ship became CCGS St. Catharines call sign CGGQ.
10) This vessel used call sign GKBR when registered in England and call sign VQYG when registered in Gibraltar. The VQYG call managed to be ( incorrectly) retained in the ITU and RCN records.
11) This ship retained her British call sign while in RCN commission.
12) This ship retained its prewar merchant call sign when it became a Canadian Naval Ship.
13) Served in the Fishermen's Reserve to 16 Sept 1941, then transferred to the RCAF where she had pendant numbers M.348 and B152 . In addition, every vessel in the RCAF from a canoe to a freighter had an M number. They used M.1 to M.1011. During WWII, the RCAF realized the Navy had issued M numbers as well so they gave the larger RCAF marine craft a B number so they would still be known as a small warship and so they would not be confused with the navy's M numbers.
14) All that a HFDF calibration ship would need is a very low powered HF transmitter say 1 watt, and simply cruise in a circle around the ship requiring calibration while the Navigator on the ship being calibrated kept an eye on its antenna via a Polaris. When it passed each 10 degree mark on his Polaris, he would yell it to the Huff Duff Operator - the one operating the HF DF.
Each ten degrees would be 000, 010, 020, 030 and so on to 360 or 000 again, a complete circle. They would probably do it for two or three bands - 4, 6, 8, 12 or 16 mcs. The vessel proving the signal was probably a small wooden one and the reason it was used rather than a shore transmitter was to save the ship being calibrated from having to swing in a circle. Once the calibration ship completed a full circle, the Huff Duff operator would produce a chart from this calibration exercise and have it available for future reference at sea.
15) Coil Skid Towing Vessel and a former Rum Runner.
16) Callsign CYXV appears to be assigned to SEA WAVE and NEW GLASGOW (FFE315) simultaneously. CYXV was assigned to SEA WAVE when NEW GLASGOW (K320) was CYTP.
