Canadian Amateur Radio Operator Interests Survey: ends March 31….

Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC), the national association for Amateur Radio in Canada, is conducting an online survey to find out how to better serve Canadian Amateurs.

Note: you do not need to be a RAC member to take the survey.

RAC is a volunteer-based organization and we rely on the feedback from members and non-members to help us stay informed and up to date on Amateur Radio matters of interest to them. From time to time, we will be conducting various surveys to help us to achieve these objectives.

The current survey was prepared by Paul Coverdale, VE3ICV, RAC’s Special Advisor at World Radio Conferences, with the goal of “understanding the operating interests of Canadian Amateurs, in terms of what bands/modes are used, the amount of time spent, the operating focus, and so on”. This information will help to guide future RAC programs and the content of The Canadian Amateur magazine, as well as providing valuable input for formulating Canadian positions into World Radio Conferences.

Non-Canadian Amateurs may also participate in the survey, but we would appreciate it if you would please identify this in Questions 1 and 7. Some of the questions relate to specific bands and modes that may not be applicable to you, but you can simply leave these questions blank and move on to the next questions. If some of your Amateur Radio activities are done outside of Canada, please indicate only the portion that is done within Canada.

Your answers on our surveys are completely anonymous but we would appreciate it if you would please indicate in the survey if you are a RAC member to help us to use the information to serve you better.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and it is available at:

Thank you for participating!
