[RAC-Bulletin] RAC’s First Gold Maple Leaf Operator Member: IARU President Tim Ellam, VE6SH



At the Dayton Hamvention on Friday morning, May 18, RAC President Glenn MacDonell, VE3XRA, presented Tim Ellam, VE6SH, International Amateur Radio Union President, with RAC's first Gold Maple Leaf Operator Membership.

Tim made a special request to become RAC's first Gold Maple Leaf Operator Member to illustrate the International Amateur Radio Union's continued support of Radio Amateurs of Canada. Thanks Tim!

RAC created two new categories of our Maple Leaf Operators (MLO) Membership level: Silver and Gold as part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations. Other national Amateur Radio organizations – as well as non-Amateur organizations supported by membership – have several levels of participation allowing those who are able to do so to make higher contributions to sustain the organization. The new Silver and Gold Maple Leaf Operator levels will make this possible.

[RAC-Bulletin] New RAC Maple Leaf Operator Levels now available: Silver and Gold

Radio Amateurs of Canada is pleased to announce two new levels of RAC Maple Leaf Operator Memberships: Silver and Gold




The Maple Leaf Operator Membership is a special, premium membership level designed for individuals who wish to more directly sponsor RAC and its activities, above and beyond standard membership contributions.

All Maple Leaf Operators receive the same benefits as a regular RAC member but, in addition, every Maple Leaf Operator is acknowledged in each issue of The Canadian Amateur magazine, by name and call sign, for as long as they remain at MLO status.

As part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations, we have created two new categories of our Maple Leaf Operators (MLO) Membership level: Silver and Gold.

Other national Amateur Radio organizations – as well as non-Amateur organizations supported by membership – have several levels of participation allowing those who are able to do so to make higher contributions to sustain the organization. The new Silver and Gold Maple Leaf Operator levels will make this possible.

​By becoming a Maple Leaf Operator (MLO) at one of the three levels of membership listed below your contribution will directly support RAC's programs:

Bronze: $100 per year (plus applicable taxes) provides approximately $44 per year in additional funds to sustain RAC and to help it grow

Silver: $500 per year (plus applicable taxes) provides approximately $444 per year to RAC

Gold: $1,000 per year (plus applicable taxes) provides approximately $944 each year to RAC

If you are able to do so please join our new Maple Leaf Operator Program at whatever level you can. To upgrade now, please call us at 1-877-273-8304 or contact RAC HQ, Monday to Friday 10 am to 4 pm ET.

[RAC-Bulletin] Dayton Hamvention 2018: May 18-20


Dayton Hamvention 2018: May 18-20
Come visit RAC at Dayton: Booth 2504 in Building 2



For the eighth year in a row, Radio Amateurs of Canada will be operating a booth at the Dayton Hamvention, the world’s largest Amateur Radio gathering. This will be the second year for the Hamvention in its new location at the Greene County Fairgrounds and Exposition Center in Xenia, Ohio.

The RAC Booth will once again be in Building 2 along with the International Amateur Radio Union, the American Radio Relay League and other national organizations.




This is the 67th year of the Dayton Hamvention, sponsored by the Dayton Amateur Radio Association. Each year, a specific theme – such as Amateur Radio clubs, global friendship or the advent of digital modes – spotlights one of the many facets of the Amateur Radio Service.

This year’s theme is “Amateur Radio...Serving the Community.” Ron Cramer, KD8ENJ, Hamvention General Chairman, said the theme acknowledges the role that Amateur Radio operators play in their communities, especially in times of emergencies.

“During recent disasters, hurricanes in Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico and wildfires in the West, Amateur Radio operators were once again called upon to provide emergency communication assistance when regular services failed or were overtaxed,” Cramer said.

The schedule is as follows:

Fleamarket and Inside Exhibits

Friday: 9 am to 6 pm

Saturday: 9 am to 5 pm

Sunday: 9 am to 1 pm

Further information about the Dayton Hamvention can be found online at: http://www.hamvention.org

For a look at last year's event visit our Dayton 2017 photo gallery at: http://wp.rac.ca/dayton-ha mvention-2017/

So come visit the RAC Booth 2504 in Building 2 and talk to your RAC volunteers. Better yet contact us and volunteer to work at the booth: RAC Headquarters racgm@rac.ca; or by telephone at 1-877-273-8304.
