RAC Confirms IC’s Responsibilities

[html] Subject: [RAC-Bulletin] RAC Bulletin #2008-13: Erroneous E-mail Sparks Petition – RAC Confirms IC’s Responsibilities
On 18 May 2008, a petition began circulating on the Internet that quotes an unsigned e-mail from the Toronto District Office of Industry Canada (IC)
stating that Industry Canada is no longer the  regulatory body overseeing the amateur radio service, and that amateur radio is self-policing.
Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) contacted IC on 20 May, the first working day after the petition began. IC have confirmed that its contents are incorrect.
IC clearly affirmed they are the regulatory authority for Amateur Radio in Canada. The originator of the petition, Eddie Pereira VA3EDP, has since received a message from the acting Director of IC’s Toronto District Office confirming that the original unsigned e-mail was sent in error. Eddie will be meeting an IC official in the near future to discuss a spectrum
management issue that was the cause of his initial inquiry with IC.
RAC asks all Canadian Amateurs to contact RAC first if they have specific concerns about IC’s willingness or ability to supervise the Amateur Radio Service. RAC is here to serve the interests of all Canadian Amateurs and we will do our best to ensure IC listens to our concerns.

New Baseline Repeater Shack

[html] The new radio shack on top of Baseline mountain has been installed and all the equipment has been transferred over."new_building-small2.jpg" "back_of_racks.jpg"
This new building is top notch and we are very lucky to be able to use it.
Thanks goes out to Husky Oil for giving us access and especially for  designing the new building for us to have our own rack to put the VE6VHF repeater into. Also for the use of DC power which is generated up there by TIG generators and solar panels. Also thanks goes out to Dick at Communications Group for all his help and supplying us with new LMR cables to hook our ant ports to the new Poly Phaser grounding panel on the wall..Our feed line doesn't go right into the shack any more so we needed new cables made. 
Some more work needs to be done to clean up the cables on the outside of the building to add the cable tray over to the tower itself and then a new support for our long feed line over to our tower… We poured a new cement base for this support while we were up there and Comm Group will finish this later on…Skip
