The following bulletin was received from Radio Amateurs of Canada on February 16th 2017
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.
