Canadian Amateur Radio Federation

The Canadian Amateur Radio Federation was founded 1967 as a federation of provincial amateur radio organizations. In the 1970s the CARF reorganized and began allowing individual radio amateurs to join. CARF published a magazine called The Canadian Amateur for several years beginning in 1973.

CARF merged with the Canadian Radio Relay League in 1993 to form Radio Amateurs of Canada.

Thanks to Dale Olson VE6QDO and the Calgary Amateur Radio Association for the copies of The Canadian Amateur.

Canadian Radio Relay League

The addition of QST Canada magazine to this website is in my view, a significant addition to the history of Canadian amateur radio as it relates to the formation of our present national and international advocacy organization, Radio Amateurs of Canada Inc.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time that QST Canada will appear on-line for all to see and read.

Amateur Radio is well organized both nationally and internationally and that has made it possible for our 'technical hobby' to continue, grow and prosper.

Many thanks go to Mr. Harry MacLean, VE3GRO, of London, Ontario who kindly loaned me his complete collection of QST Canada for re-publication on the world wide web at Long-Delayed Echoes. Harry was a senior official of the Canadian Radio Relay League Inc. and served with distinction including holding the post of Editor of QST Canada for its entire run.

On behalf of Canadian 'Hams' I thank Harry for his service to the hobby and for the loan of his complete collection of QST Canada.
