RAC President Dave Goodwin VO1AU/VE3AAQ has named Gabor Horvath VE7DXG of
Duncan, BC as Chair of RAC's VHF/UHF Bandplanning Committee. The
Committee's role is to make recommendations to the RAC Board on how Amateur
spectrum between 30MHz and 2GHz is divided among the various modes and
techniques employed by Canadian Radio Amateurs. Gabor is looking for
volunteers to serve on the committee, and the begin the process of reviewing
and updating the current band plans. Please contact Gabor at VE7DXG@rac.ca.
The Committee is not responsible for assigning frequency pairs to particular
repeaters - that is the work of local repeater coordinators.
Gabor succeeds Graham Ide VE3BYT of Ottawa ON, who resigned as Chair of the
committee in 2007. RAC is very grateful to Graham for his many years of
service to Canadian Amateurs.
