Ian Macfarquhar, VE9IM, Appointed as ARISS Regional Representative:

The Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC http://www.rac.ca) has appointed Ian MacFarquhar, VE9IM, to be the new Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS \http://www.ariss.org) Regional Representative, replacing Daniel Lamoureux, VE2KA.

"Canadian ARISS representatives have always been a huge benefit to the ARISS team," said Rosalie White, K1STO, ARRL's ARISS delegate and ARISS-International Secretary-Treasurer. "Not only have the Canadians contributed a great deal of sound thinking and hard work, but many have been highly active with IARU long before getting involved in ARISS -- this was a huge benefit since ARISS is an international group."

RAC President Geoff Bawden, VE4BAW, pointed out that MacFarquhar has served as RAC Vice President, supervised its successful insurance program, "and has been a pillar in RAC for longer than he cares to remember." -- Thanks to RAC
