Operation of the RAC QSL Bureau System would not be possible without the commitment and hard work of the QSL Bureau volunteers. RAC, and all those who benefit, salute these dedicated amateurs and extend sincere appreciation for the long hours they devote to this difficult task.
Member societies of the International Radio Union (IARU) operate a world wide system of QSL Bureaus. Radio Amateurs of Canada, as the Canadian member-society, operates a National Incoming Bureau, and sponsors the Incoming Bureaus for the twelve Canadian call areas.
Cards received by the National Incoming Bureau from IARU member societies are sorted and forwarded to the Incoming Bureau in each call area. ALL VE/VA cards are now to be sent directly to the RAC National Incoming Bureau and not to the Outgoing Bureau. Domestic cards sent to the Outgoing Bureau will experience a delay.
