Amateur Radio has been a big part of my and my families lives as all three of my children are licensed, and also my wife Cheryl is a amateur operator too. It was funny when my wife got her call which is VA3SPQ and she would call me on the repeater, oh yes my call is VE3SPQ. My son was the youngest Ham in Canada back in the early 1990's ( just turned 10) hence his call was VE3YHC - Andrew (lives in Collingwood, my next oldest is Jennifer VA3JCA ( lives in Kapuskasing), and my youngest daughter 's call is VE3KSL - Krystal (lives in Collingwood). I monitor the Kapuskasing Repeater 146.930 and also monitor my repeater VA3FOK here in Fauquier 443.800 pl 156.7
Was an examiner from 1991 until 2007. My belief still remains the same, as a older Ham Operator we must help and guide the newer Hams for a prosperous and gradifying Hobby to be enjoyed and show comrodery to all our brethern and sisters in this Hobby.
