Loyalist City Amateur Radio Club Celebrates 80th Anniversary this Year (2017)

By Len Morgan

The Loyalist City Amateur Radio Club Inc. serves the amateur radio operator community in and around the City of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. The Club call sign VE9LC can be heard during the annual contests such as Field Day, Canada Day Contest, and Canada Winter Contests. The club was founded in 1937 and has been active for all those years, except for the WWII years. On February 18, 1937, a group of interested radio amateurs met to organize a radio club in Saint John. Those present at the first meeting were: C. Brannen, L. Codner VE1GP, G. Coffin, J. Diblee VE1IF, M. Doull VE1EE, D. Fowlie VE1GI, H. Fowlie VE1GQ, K. Melvin VE1BF, V. Mills, C. McWilliams, A Power, M. Redding VE1IZ, A. Ruthen VE1HL, W. Smith VE1FC and F. White VE1FL. The club was organized to aid the advancement of radio amateurs, and to protect amateur radio activity in the district.
A constitution was drawn up by the Executive, and it was approved by the club members at the first general meeting, held on March 18, 1937.

The club holds monthly meetings at the New Brunswick Community College in Saint John, Room E2001, the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at 7:30PM. All are welcome.

We will celebrate the clubs anniversary later in the summer with a BBQ, possible radio set-up and other activities that will be announced later.

Written by Administrator   

Radio Amateurs of Canada would like to welcome Frank Davis, VO1HP, as the Deputy Director for the Atlantic Region. RAC Atlantic Director, Dave Goodwin, VE9CB, appointed Frank as Deputy Director on February 8, 2017.

Frank is a very well-known and well-respected Radio Amateur from St John’s and Carbonear, Newfoundland. He has been an Amateur for over 50 years and brings a wealth of Amateur Radio and professional experience to RAC. He will be an important source of sage advice.

Frank is an avid 160m DXer with over 200 countries on “Top Band” and is currently involved in a project to bridge the Atlantic on 144 MHz by terrestrial propagation modes.

Frank’s predecessor as Atlantic Deputy Director was Len Morgan, VE9MY, of Baxter’s Corner, near Saint John, New Brunswick. Len has served RAC and Canadian Amateur Radio with great distinction as a past Atlantic Director and Deputy Director, and he continues to serve as the Manager of the RAC Incoming QSL Bureau. Thank you for many years of outstanding work, Len.

ISED revises RIC-3 Version 4 and CEPT permits PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), formerly Industry Canada, has issued a revised version of RIC-3, Information on the Amateur Radio Service. It replaces RIC-3 Version 3 that was released in July 2005. Radio Amateurs of Canada welcomes the change as it addresses several long-standing issues pointed out by RAC in the past where the document required updating to address changes in technologies and practices, notably the decision by many administrations to remove the requirement for Morse code qualification for new Radio Amateurs. The new version of RIC-3 can be found online at: http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf01008.html
