RAC volunteer recognition: Jacques Dubé VE2QK (VE2 QSL Bureau)
This year marks 20 years of true continuous volunteer dedication RAC wishes to highlight. The dedication from our volunteers is what brings success to many aspects of our organization.
In 1994, Jacques Dubé took over the VE2 QSL Incoming Bureau from Albert Daemen VE2IJ. Jacques has been handling the Bureau on his own since his wife passed away in 1996.
Jacques worked at Canada Post for 33 years and was able to secure two mail sortation racks that are now being used to sort cards. To date Jacques has handled well over 600,000 QSL cards and uses his own programs to manage the Bureau, credits etc. Jacques was first licensed as a ham in 1987 with call sign VE2JAD and obtained his advanced in 1988 then changed calls to VE2QK. No longer owning a station Jacques remains active using Echolink and is also an administrator with Hamsphere.
From RAC and all those who benefit from your dedication to the QSL VE2 Bureau: A Huge Thank you!
