RAC Adds PEI Section

If you enjoy operating ARRL Sweepstakes, Field Day or the ARRL 160-Meter Contest, you'll want to know that there's about to be one more possible multiplier to work … the Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) has created a separate admini- strative section for Prince Edward Island (PEI), which until now has been part of the Maritimes section, along with New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

The ARRL Letter reports that the change will take effect on April 1, along with a shift in boundaries between two Ontario sections: The City of Hamilton and the Regional Municipality of Niagara, currently in the Ontario South section, will become part of the Greater Toronto Area section.
