My Personal Background

Ok, here's my short CV .

Yours truly grew up in west Toronto and Etobicoke and attended Royal York Collegiate. I got my ham ticket in early 1969 and after a year on HF went up on VHF and haven't been back, except for some contesting.

I'm a graduate of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the UNIVERSITY of TORONTO, graduating with a BASc  (Engineering).

I've served on various committees at U of T as part of my contribution to the Alumni Association at U of T, and served in various executive capacities including President of the UofT Engineering Alumni Association , and President of the permanent executive of my class.

I have  progressive experience as a Professional Engineer including:

In addition, I am one of the founding members of VE3ONT, The Toronto VHF Society -- a group dedicated to VHF UHF Dxing and exploration. VE3ONT holds every Canadian record for the ARRL VHF Contests, and has operated the EME (Moonbounce) contest using the 150 foot dish at Algonquin Park, Ontario. Our Megawatt ERP signals (on 50,144,220,432,1296 and 10 GHz) are now roughly 11 light years from earth!!!!

I've also finally admitted to myself that I've had my ham license for 33 years, and am now a life member of the Quarter Century Wireless Association(QCWA). I'm also a member of RAC, ARRL, the Ontario VHF Association, and Etobicoke's Skywide Amateur Radio Club.

Recent work has been in the area of WIFI communications and establishing a WIFI based network at 2.4 GHz, for emergency communications.
