THE CANADIAN AMATEUR MAGAZINE

Cover of September-October 2014 issue of The Canadian Amateur and the Six Metres and Down column

The Canadian Amateur (TCA) magazine is the membership journal of Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC), which is a not-for-profit membership association with its headquarters in Ottawa. It is a national organization, representing the interests of Amateur Radio all across Canada and it is also the publisher of TCA.

 

TCA is a bi-monthly publication available to RAC members in both print and digital versions in grayscale and in colour. At 68 pages (including covers), I coordinate, edit and design all content including all articles and columns – both technical and non-technical – and all advertising.

 

Here is a summary of my activities:

 

Project Management:

 

  • Communicated directly with all stakeholders including authors, columnists, advertisers, printers and with Radio Amateurs of Canada
  • Coordinated all submissions to the magazine and communicated directly with the publisher to determine what content would be included in each magazine

 

Editing and Proofreading:

 

 

Desktop Publishing / Design of Main Document using Adobe InDesign:

 

  • Prepared layouts for all 68 pages of the magazine including all cover files and advertising
  • Provided drafts to authors and columnists for their approval

 

Advertising:

 

  • Communicated directly with all advertisers and inserted all ads into the publication
  • Designed ads for several advertisers and provided drafts for their approval

 

Printing:

 

  • Communicated directly with the printer and with Radio Amateurs of Canada headquarters
  • Prepared hi-res PDF files for printing and reviewed all proofs prior to printing
