For immediate release:
Nominations for the Canadian Amateur Radio Hall of Fame Award are now being accepted. The deadline is September 30.
Radio Amateurs of Canada recognizes deserving Amateurs by appointments to the Canadian Amateur Radio Hall of Fame.
The Constitution of the Hall specifies that the appointment as Member of the Hall is for “outstanding achievement and excellence of the highest degree, for serious and sustained service to Amateur Radio in Canada, or to Amateur Radio at large”.
The Trustees of the Hall have interpreted the Constitution to mean that the person has performed significant service over many years to enhance the well-being of Amateur Radio. No single achievement would necessarily qualify an Amateur for the Hall of Fame, but a lifetime of service would be favourable. A list of previous Hall of Fame Members can be found on the CARHOF webpage.
