Barrie Crampton, VE3BSB, appointed to Canadian Amateur Radio Hall of Fame (CARHOF)

The Board of Trustees of the Canadian Amateur Radio Hall of Fame is pleased to announce that Barrie Crampton, VE3BSB, has been named to the Hall of Fame. Radio Amateurs of Canada recognizes deserving Amateurs by appointments to the Canadian Amateur Radio Hall of Fame. The Constitution for the Hall specifies that the appointment as Member of the Hall is made for “outstanding achievement and excellence of the highest degree, for serious and sustained service to Amateur Radio in Canada, or to Amateur Radio at large”. The Trustees of the Hall have interpreted the Constitution to mean that the person has performed significant service over many years to enhance the well-being of Amateur Radio.

Barrie Crampton, VE3BSB, was first licensed in 1954 and was issued the call sign VE2WQ. In 1955, he built his first radio transmitter and receiver and later one of his mentors helped him obtain a Royal Air Force R1155 aircraft receiver. Shortly thereafter, he began working with Spartan Air Services on the herculean task of photographing the Canadian Arctic for government mapping purposes.
