Many thanks to SWLing Post and SRAA contributor, Richard Langley, who writes:

“[C]oncerning the RCI anniversary, attached are scans of a QSL card from the CBC International Service for reception on 20 April 1964 when I was in high school. That was on the Knight-Kit Span Master regenerative receiver I had built the previous Christmas.”

“About 50 years later (in 2012, actually), I did an interview with RCI’s Victor Nerenberg on GPS and the ionosphere, which appeared on the RCI program “The Link.”

It’s still on their website:

(about 15 minutes in)
and

The RCI site also is featuring some information related to the 70th anniversary:

And, lastly, there’s also some interesting stuff in the CBC’s Digital Archives under

There was also an episode of the CBC Rewind archives program on RCI:

Many thanks, Richard! I wish I understood the ionosphere as well as you do–that was a fascinating interview. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Gorgeous QSL card, by the way!

    I have the same QSL card in my collection. Those wonderful days of little noise and great radio. Thanks for sharing.
