Each year Amateur Radio donates thousands of person-hours of supplementary public service communications during real emergencies, through simulated emergency tests and at events such as parades and marathons.  Participation in these kinds of events shows Amateur Radio at its best.  It is critically important that RAC bring documentation of this public service work to the attention of Industry Canada and other public officials. ALL such events, including those not involving RAC members or Services, should be reported. The information you provide on the form below will be an important addition to the records. Please complete and return this form to RAC Headquarters, 720 Belfast Rd, Suite 217, Ottawa, ON K1G 0Z5.  Mark it to the attention of VP Field Services.  Send a copy to your RAC Section Manager as well.
