This is a follow-up to yesterday’s post. In my haste I left out congratulating Paul Burggraaf, VO1PRB, who will be the new RAC secretary as of the new year as of the new year and Margaret Tidman, VA3VXN, will take over as treasure.
Margaret has worked in the field of accounting for nearly 10 years and currently is working as a financial analyst. In March of this year she studied the RAC Hamstudy Basic Guide and passed her basix exam on May 23, 2009.
Paul has been licensed since March 2003 and holds a basic qualification. His interest in radio was peaked from his military background in Army Cadets and as an officer in the Canadian Forces Reserves during the 1970s. Since joining the Society of Newfoundland Radio Amateurs and obtaining his license Paul has held several executive positions in the organization and is currently its vice president. Paul currently works for the Office of the Auditor General, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador as a network administrator.
