In my afternoon email comes this announcement from the RAC President VE4BAW Geoff:
Robert Critch VE3QTH joins RAC Team as the New National Affiliated Club Coordinator
For those of you who are not familur with Robert here is a short bio:
BIO: VE3QTH Robert Critch
Born in Montreal Quebec 1961 and lived there as a young boy. Then moved to St. Jean, Que. Years later moved to Nova Scotia for awhile before trekking to the Island of Newfoundland.
As many young Newfoundlanders do, he moved and settled in Toronto. But the attraction of Barrie Ontario soon called out to him. So he packed up the family and radio gear to land in the beautiful south-end of Barrie Ontario Canada, that he now calls home.
Robert has had a long and outstanding carrier in Voice and Data Communications Technology. He has worked for both large and small organizations over the years and has run several business. His current accomplishments include being the current President of Barrie Amateur Radio Club Inc.(BARC), and being owner & President of a small Telecommunications company. He is active on VHF, UHF, and HF on several Phone and Digital modes.
He is also very active in CANWARN, ARES, and BARC activities & Club events. He holds a Basic + license.
Robert will be joining the RAC team, taking over as RAC’s National Affiliated Club Coordinator.
“ We live in a time of huge accomplishments in Science and Technology and Radio Amateurs have been at the forefront of so many of the advances. Amateur Radio is at it’s best, when we work together. It is my personal goal to help bring local clubs together under RAC on a national scale, to share in their knowledge, ability and passion for Amateur Radio.”
Thanks to Geoff for sharing this with us and a really big thanks to Robert for joining our team. A bit more info on this will be out in the next issue of TCA and will also be the subject of a RAC Bulletin in the near future…
Just remember… The original Amateur Radio Social Media device used a “Key” and not a “Keyboard”.
