Description

There have been several recent changes in the aids to navigation near Puvirnituq, Quebec.

Ranges no. 3 and 4 (counting from the ocean) have been established.

The old range no. 3 (azimuth 026) is replaced with the new range no. 3 – Tikiraaluk (azimuth 034.5).

Range no. 4 – Timmijuuvinirtalik (azimuth 080) is new and will be used to avoid the shoals off Pointe Big Finger. 

The old rear range no. 3 has been disassembled and permanently discontinued but the racon remains unchanged, and keeps broadcasting the same P (.- -.) call sign from the same location.

When numbered from the ocean, ranges no. 1, 2 and 5 remain unchanged.

All the ranges remain unlit.
