First became interested in Ham Radio while growing up in Dartmouth, N.S. with mentors Randy, VE1AHZ, and Del, VE1TM. I enjoyed building and rejuvinating radios. After college, marriage, and moving to London I met Mitch, VE3OT, at work, and he encouraged me to get my licence in 1975.

I was very active on the bands and in the local club, LARC, for many years. I also helped with the founding of the CRRL with Mitch and Harry, VE3GRO, and served on the 1979 Radio Society of Ontario Convention organizing comittee. I started teaching electronics at Fanshawe College in 1993 and stopped playing with radio in the little spare time I had.

I followed my interest in Astronomy and became involved with the London Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, and served as Centre President from 2000 to 2011.  I learned to grind and polish my own telescope mirrors, and currently need to finish a 41cm f4.5.  I retired in 2008 and immediately started thinking about playing with electronics once again. The antennas were in fair shape, a new rig was purchased, a Yaesu FT-950, coax replaced, and a new station set up. I spend most of my air time on 80, 40, or 20m SSB or 20 and 40m PSK31.

I hope we meet on the air, or under some clear dark skies.
