Get yourself posted

Do you have a special event coming up? Or maybe you’ve just had one? Why not let the rest of Canada know about it? It’s easy to do.

Why not post your photos and info right here on the RAC Blog?

Send us by email a digital image in JPG format that is around 500 kilobytes (no bigger than 1 meg) in size. Just about any digital point and shoot or DSLR camera will do the trick. Make sure your subject(s) can be seen clearly and that the shot is fairly close up. Include in the email a line or two of information as follows: Who (left to right); What; Where; Why; and When. If you’ve got more information and would like to send it please do so. If you wish to take the time to actually do a small write-up I’d recommend keeping it to no more than 200 to 400 words.

If you’ve got a video clip posted to YouTube, please send us the link and a short description of what viewers will see and I’ll post that as well.

Field Day, hamfests, club meetings, ARES events, antenna parties and just about anything else that has to do with amateur radio in Canada is welcome.

If you have any questions or need any guidance don’t hesitate to contact me directly at Peter, VE3HG at

Oh and by the way this offer isn’t limited to RAC members but then again why wouldn’t you be a member?  :)

Here’s a link you might want to read about RAC and you. And here’s another one about the benefits of RAC membership.

If you’re a ham in Ontario and you don’t like Bill 118 you should consider joining with your fellow amateurs as we’ll be going back to the ministry of transport in a year or so to get the limited exemption made permanent. When it comes to politicians, numbers count. Can we count on you?

Same thing when it comes to spectrum space. As I said before, Canadian hams have access to more frequency spectrum than anyone else in Canada with the sole exception of the military. The broadband cellular telephone among others are crying out for more frequencies and they’re looking at our microwave and up spectrum space.

Now is the time to join a national organization.

The national organization we have is Radio Amateurs of Canada. Radio Amateurs of Canada is made up of members like you. If you’re already a member, then pleasego to your next club meeting or Field Day event and ask your fellow hams to join with you in supporting your national organization.

The issues are pressing. The time is short. Now is the time to act.
