I was born on Cape Race and grew up pretty well at a very busy Coast Station /VCE ( formerly MCE).

I moved to St John's,NL in1953 to complete high school,followed by Radio Communications School

I Graduated in June 1957,,with a Certificate of Proficiency in Radio,2nd Class,and promptly was hired as a Radio Operator in the Marine Service of Canadian National Railways. In 1964, I joined Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).as Master Control Tech.,and progressed to Technical Maintenace,,Technical Instructor,Acting Technical Supervisor. In 1982 ,I resigned from CBC to start My own business in Goulds,NL

It was in 1957,I was introduced to Amateur Radio by then VO1AW, Clarence Mitchell (now S.K.) Mitch had a Big Heathkit Apache transmitter and a Hammerlund Receiver.Mitch was also a Marine Radio Operator on the S.S.Burgeo & I was on the Big new one, The M,V William Carson We had many great cw qsos'.

I became more active in 1959 ,using VO1BA, My Brother's Stn,then My own call,VO1HL In 1967 , I took a brief 30 year hyatius,returning to the airwaves in1997.

In 2001 I joined the Board of Cape Race Heritage Inc,and We were successful in replicating the 1907 Marconi Station,which was known world wide as the Station that handled the Titanic Distress Traffic on April 14th & 15th,April 1912.

I was honored to have had the Building named The Myrick Wireless Interpretation Centre,after My family which produced many Fine Radio Operatiors,and Telegraphers.

I am still a Board Member of CRH Inc,and also a Member of our Titanic Steering Committee,formulating plans for the 100th Anniversary of The Loss of the RMS Titanic (See VO1MCE). I also operate VO1FU/B,, 50.073 mhzand sponsor VO1CQD/R 147.280 +, VO1CPR/R 147.120+. & VO1GRR.147.375+
