Finally RAC has beaten me to a great news story 🙂
ONTARIO HAMS ARE GETTING AN ADDITIONAL 5 YEAR EXTENSION ON BILL 118!!!!!!!!!!
This is great news and I don’t care a wit how it came about but let’s all get behind RAC and help our executive officers like president Geoff Bawden and the Ontario directors assemble a volunteer lobbying group here in Ontario.
We can’t wait until the 11th hour to do our due diligence but obviously something happened at the Ministry of Transportation to cause this change and we should find out what it was.
Look IMHO RAC is one the most secret hobby group I’ve have ever heard of. Heck we don’t even know how many members we’ve got and this isn’t (or shouldn’t be) a state secret.
But while flawed (and perhaps fatally) RAC is the only tool we have right now (unless a group of club presidents in Canada get together and we start something new that works) so let’s try and get the guys at the top to get busy on this issue and many others that are facing ham radio in Canada.
Having said that, and with no information forthcoming from RAC, I am still betting this exemption has a lot to do with the leadership and hard work of North/East Ontario Regional Director Bill Unger, VE3XT.
Thanks Bill. You’ve been one bright light in a very dark time for ham radio in Canada.
This is wonderful news.
