Subject: VE5FX new Midwest Assistant Director
RAC is pleased to announce the addition of Bjarne "Bj"
Madsen, VE5FX as RAC's newest Assistant Midwest Director. Bj
was first licenced in 1978 and became an accomplished DX'er
and Contester. He became an Accredited Examiner for Industry
Canada and taught Amateur Radio Courses. In 1984 he became
the RAC VE5 incoming QSL Bureau Manager, and continues today
in this crucial role.
Bj has been an Assistant Director before, during Bob Shehyn's
Directorship, so he is no stranger in resuming his former
role! Bj retired last year from a career in teaching in
Weyburn SK, and has moved to his new home and antenna farm.
Bj is the fourth Assistant Director in the Midwest Region of
Manitoba and Saskatchewan. He joins Bob Shehyn, VE5FY of
Moose Jaw, SK, Adam Romanchuk, VE4SN of Winnipeg, MB, and Jim
Bendle VE5EB of Young, SK.

Albert) can be reached at (firstname.lastname@example.org)
