1. RAC Membership Campaign

Radio Amateurs of Canada has announced a year-long membership campaign starting on Field Day 2010.  RAC is providing campaign aterials such as brochures, and is asking each RAC member to prsonally ask 20 amateurs to join RAC — whether they join or not, just ask 20.  The goal is to increase RAC membership by 1,000 over
the next year.  For information and campaign materials, visit tinyurl.com/rac-campaign

2. OPN Seeks Two Net Control Stations

Due to a change in work schedules, the Ontario Phone Net (OPN) needs
a new operator to run the Tuesday night net. You start by checking
into the Second Region Net on 3.925 MHz at 18:30 Eastern, checking
for traffic to Ontario.  At 19:00 Eastern you QSY to 3.742 MHz and
run OPN.

We also have an open slot on Saturdays with the same format.  If you
can help out, please contact Bob VA3QV, via OPN, or via email at
