Canadian has honoured two Amateur/Ham Radio Operators as their Radio Amateurs of the Year 2017.
Don Studney, VE7DS and Keith Witney, VE7KW, were awarded as co-recipients of the RAC Amateur of the Year Award for 2017 for their work that made VE100VIMY a part of Canadian Amateur Radio history.
The project was a uniquely Canadian special event station VE100VIMY, and the conception, planning, organizing and fulfillment of the project was done by Don Studney, VE7DS, Team Leader and Keith Witney, VE7KW, Deputy Team Leader and Chief Engineer of the Vimy Commemorative Station Society. Together, Don and Keith made the project happen, a project that involved more than 40,000 Amateurs around the world!
