47 years young today!

I wondered what was going on in ham radio in Canada back then.

In 1973:

I was a newly-minted engineer, working in the Alberta oilpatch, living in Drayton Valley.  My call back then was VE6BAB.  Rig was a Heathkit SB-102.

We had not one but two organizations: Canadian Radio Relay League (a division of ARRL until 1988), and Canadian Amateur Radio Federation (formed by provincial ham organizations).  They mercifully merged to form RAC in 1993.

A report titled: CANADA EMO WORKING GROUP ON THE AMATEUR EXPERIMENTAL SERVICE IN EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS was published. 73
