RAC Ontario Sections Bulletin for April 20, 2024

RAC Ontario Sections Bulletin for April 20, 2024

Official Bulletin Station for Radio Amateurs of Canada with
this week’s bulletin.


1.    Incorrect Renewal Message sent to RAC Members

We have received several reports from RAC members who have received
a message from RAC which indicates that their membership has ended.
This message was in fact sent by Radio Amateurs of Canada to members,
but it was entirely as a result of a technical error while working on an
update to the RAC website.
We apologize for this error and any inconvenience that it has caused and
we thank you once again for your response. If this had in fact been a
phishing or other cybersecurity threat we hope that you would act the
same way and contact RAC before clicking on any links.

2.     The new ONTARS website Market Place.

Market Place has underwent significant software updates. Our new
format is a breeze to use, with the ability to post multiple images of
your gear as well as it is now easier to use for the novice user.
Take a look at this site! In the last few days, more than 75 users from
all over Canada have registered. Classified ads are streaming in daily.
