First licensed as Basic Amateur 1966 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Upgraded to Advanced Amateur 1967. Taught Morse Code at the MARC (Montreal Amateur Radio Club) classes for next 2 years. One of the technical crew on VE2MT (Main VHF FM Repeater in Montreal) on 146.46/146.94 (was the start of a long radio career). Worked for Motorola Canada from 1969 to 1992, first in Montreal (1969-1980), then Toronto (1980 - 1992), left to operate my own Communications Business. President of the Montreal Amateur Radio Club (MARC) 1972 - 1975 (was president during the birth of Digital Packet Radio). Operated 5V7GE from Lome, Togo West Africa during the summer of 1979 (My one and only excursion as DX.). President of the Motorola Amateur Radio Club sometime in the 80s. Chairman of Western New York Southern Ontario Repeater Council (WNYSORC) in the 80s. Started Toronto's First Packet Radio (The first was actually in Brampton) BBS VE3NUU in 1985 which has been on the air continously with the same call first in Toronto then in Cornwall Ontario (I am a diehard). Installed repeater VE3PGC (Packet Group of Cornwall) in March 1993 on 443.000 mHz which has been on the air continously since. Went On Line with IRLP Node 260 (Internet Radio Linking Project) October 2001. To paraphrase someone on the Internet ... "Amateur Radio is NOT a hobby it is an ADVENTURE" ... Moved to the Niagara Region of Ontario in the summer of 2004 I am now Treasurer of the COBRA Radio Club and manage VE3YYZ repeater in Toronto. I operate Echolink node VE3YYZ-R in Toronto, VE3EI-L in Niagara and VE3PGC-L in Cornwall. As of April 2006 I now work for ICOM Canada as a Technical Representative for all divisions of the country. My main responsibility is to oversee DSTAR (Digital Smart Technologies for Amateur Radio) operations throughout the country as well as all new Digital Modulation Technologies. As I stated before, Amateur Radio, and life, are an adventure. I can be mainly found on DSTAR Node VE3YYZ in Toronto. But, it is DSTAR, so entering my callsign anywhere in North America will get me on the system! Look forward to talking to you! I also have the callsigns G4ILB (Pending UK), 8P9AX (Barbados) and JG1HEP (Japan) as well as VE3NUU, VE3PGC, VE3YYZ, VA3YYZ and VA3NAG I am now President of the Niagara Peninsula Amateur Radio Club (NPARC) where the club operates VE3NRS, VE3WCD on VHF, VE3RNR on UHF and VA3NRS on 220 MHz.
