From: RAC Headquarters Date: July 28, 2001 Subject: VE3GLN Amateur of the Year 2000 The RAC Board of Directors take great pleasure in announcing their election of Glenn McLeod, VE3GLN of Ottawa, as the Canadian Radio Amateur of the Year for 2000. Glenn retired as a Major in the Canadian Armed Forces in 1988 and is currently logistics officer at the Communications Research Centre. He was licensed in 1978 as VO1DV, later as VE3MPR and now VE3GLN. He is active on all bands and modes from 160 metres through to 70 cm with 270 countries confirmed. Glenn's contributions to amateur radio are many, however it is for one particular achievement that Glenn earned this award for the conception and organization of a record-breaking 35A Field Day entry in the Ottawa-Hull region. It was this event where the opening ceremony was honoured with the presence of representatives from RAC, RAQI and the ARRL. The event was officially opened by Michael Binder, Assistant Deputy Minister, Spectrum Management, Industry Canada, who addressed the public and emphasized the contribution of Amateur Radio to the service of the public. An engraved silver tray, will be presented to Glenn by Doug Leach, VE3XK, RAC Ontario - North Regional Director.
