RAC Bulletin 2010-040E – Season’s Greetings
To Fellow Radio Amateurs, your Families and Loved ones;
I bring you seasonal greetings from your national radio association; the Radio Amateurs of Canada
I hope that 2010 has been an excellent year for you and those that you hold dear.
As we enter this holiday season I want to wish each and every one of you a warm wish for a fabulous holiday season as well as a healthy
and prosperous 2011. I am sure that you will be taking time to be with your friends and family. Being with those closest to you makes
this the finest part of the year.
I hope to hear you on the airwaves 0000 UTC to 2359 UTC on December 18th for the RAC Winter Day Contest.. It is part of RAC`s way to
celebrate the season.
I look forward to seeing many of you in person when the RAC Annual General Meeting comes to Newfoundland next August.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Holiday Season.
Take care . may 2011 be good to you.
Geoff Bawden, VE4BAW
President and Chair RAC
Just a reminder that your 2010 RAC Canada Winter Contest starts this Saturday December 18th at 0000 UTC.
The rules for the contest are found here:
Like I have mentioned previously in several different locations this is a very low stress friendly contest that is great for the beginners or the vets…
For my part I will be operating for part of the contest from VE3JW from Ottawa at the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology. We will be active on 10m to 80m with 2m and 6m thrown in for good measure.
Due to my proximity to the Museum (less than 1km) I will not be active from home for this contest as the museum and myself have a tendancy to knock the stuffings out of our receives when we operate on the same bands at the same time… So my contesting this year will be from VE3JW only…
Hope to hear you on the air though…
Just remember… The original Amateur Radio Social Media device used a “Key” and not a “Keyboard”.
73 from Ottawa… Bob
