Radio operating since 1962 in the Canadian Navy. After my military service I worked as a Met. Tech/Radio operator at a islolated Loran "C" station on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.This was mostly CW work and quite challenging at times,ships at sea depended on us out in the Pacific and we worked hand in hand with the Americans at Port Grenville Wash. and Cherry Point Alaska. (Loran "C" is time based triangulation for ships at sea receiving our shore station transmitted beacons).

Wrote my ham license in 1978 which was just a formality in light of my experience and have been lighting up the airwaves with my own stations ever since.

The photo is the Ucluelet light house/Radio station. I enjoy checking into the daily voice nets on 40m & 80m plus PSK31 and some CW with my old faithful Vibroplex Bug from the commercial radio days. I'm 72 and its been a lifetime experience.

There is a reason I choose this photo for my profile. My best friend Jim VE7BOR-Silent Key, and I served on the West coast of Vancouver Island together as CW RO's at a Loran "C" station on the West Coast.This was  one of the last times I saw my buddy Jim here at this station..he served for a few more years after this directing Marine shipping Traffic at the Vancouver BC Harbour atop the Lions Gate Bridge before sucumming to cancer. RIP Jim,this is also a tribute to a very good Radio operator and a friend I will never forget.
