Ian Macfarquhar, VE9IM, Receives Recognition from RAC for Excellence of Service.

The RAC Board has formally recognized VE9IM for his long term contributions to RAC. Ian has been a pillar of RAC for over a decade. He has served as Vice President through a number of Presidents and filled in as Acting President on many occasions. At our recent public meeting in southern Ontario RAC honoured Ian with a plaque presented before his colleagues.

Ian is currently RACs representative to Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS). The Space Agencies have entrusted ARISS with the task to organise ARISS School Contacts. When a contact is scheduled, volunteering amateur satellite operators set up a ground station in the selected school.

Ian is a resident of New Brunswick and is a consulting electrical engineer.
