CANADA NEW BRUNSWICK
TRACADIE-SHEILA, NEW BRUNSWICK
A LOCAL DELICACY
VE9ZY RADIO STATION
Thank you for checking my biography.
My location is in the northern part of New Brunswick, the home of the Acadians. This is a French speaking area, but New Brunswick is the only officially bilingual province in Canada ( English and French). Tracadie is a MicMac Indian word for " a good place to make a camp" and is located between two large rivers, the Little and Big Tracadie Rivers.
I am originally from Clay Cross near Chesterfield in Derbyshire, England and emigrated to Canada in 1976. My Father was from Ellon, Aberdeenshire Scotland (hence the kilt!)
I did my undergraduate and post-graduate studies at the University of Manchester and am a consultant diagnostic radiologist at the local hospital.
I passed the Canadian advanced exam and 15 wpm morse test in 1976 and received the callsign VE1AZR.
My present call VE9ZY, I chose in respect to the memory of G3ZY, my old friend and mentor and a well respected UK amateur.
I operate all bands cw, ssb, rtty and psk from 160 to 6 metres.
