First licensed in 1979 as VE3LJL. Moved to New Brunswick in 1981 and granted VE1AVQ. When VE9 calls became available obtained VE9GC. Related to the late W8VYZ by my XYL.

Also hold VE9GEC. This call is in memory of my late father. Though not ham, he was always a supporter of all my endeavours. Thanks Dad! As well I hold VE9JEC in memory of my mother.
