North East Ontario Regional Directors Report January 2011

North East Ontario Regional Directors Report January 2011

The monthly meeting of the Regional Directors was held on December 16 starting at 2330Z.

The first thing I want to do is to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope 2011 is a good one for you.

Now that all the details have been finalised I can tell you about a new feature coming in February. 

At the Directors meeting in October we decided to begin an e-newsletter, called “The RAC Report”.

It will come out in the months between TCA.  So you should see the first one in February. To ensure you receive it you may want to check your email on the membership page.  Follow this link, log in with your membership number and password and verify your email:

While you’re updating your information at RAC, you may want to verify your address with Industry Canada as well.

Since there is no Southern Ontario Director at present this report is being sent to the Southern Ontario AD’s.  If you want to be part of the RAC team as a Director please feel free to contact me and we can discuss what the job entails.

One of the themes Stephen, VE3LWX and I will be discussing this year is charitable giving to RAC.  I got interested in electronics at 16 because my uncle (VE3DPJ, SK) let me use his rig.  That lead me to a career in electronics and finally now I am teaching others electronics and occasionally teach radio classes here.  Amateur Radio has defined who I am and determined my career path.  If Amateur Radio has had an impact on your life or career why not consider giving back to the hobby you love?  A donation to RAC will allow us to carry on mentoring new younger hams and protecting our valuable frequencies.  Give it a thought and if you want to discuss it further let either Stephen or myself know.

If you have a business or know some one who may want to advertise on the RAC web site contact the webmaster and he will work with you to set it up.

If you have any questions or concerns please email me at
