Executive Board
I was first licensed in June of 1992. My main interests include listening to VHF/UHF Nets,
scanners, Short Wave Radio and I also take part in Field Day activities. I have been a
member of our Club since 1991. Since may 2003 I also hold a role of Vice President.
I received my first licence as HA3PI in Hungary, 1968; licenced in Canada as VE3USP
since 1999. My main interest is CW; I am a member of FOC (First Class Operator's Club)
since 2012, my number is #2010. I like to experiment with antennae and enjoy designing
electronic circuits.
I am very fortunate to be someone who has been part of amateur radio from birth. My
father, Eric John Kernohan was licensed in 1938 and my mother, Olive worked building
radios in the Montreal RCA plant during WW2. My dad loved building radios and as a
young child I would sit on the table and hand him the parts. I did not get licensed until
1983, after my dad passed, but am lucky to carry the family call sign forward. I very
much enjoy meeting people and amateur radio definitely helps me do that. I very
much enjoy DXing, which has been so helpful after losing my wife Ann (VE3ANN).
Thank you SWARC for allowing me to be president during this term.
I've been 'into' radio for as long as I can remember. My first radio license was obtained
in 1968.I obtained an R.O.R (Restricted Operator of Radio) license through Civil Defense
of Canada in 1970. Current calls held are VE3MAH, VE3TCC and VE3SWR. Temporarily
held call FP8SP.
I joined the Cambridge Amateur Radio Club in 1978 and have held positions of
president, secretary, bulletin editor, education coordinator and repeater tech team.
Most of my radio activities include the technical side including design and
construction of antennas and accessories. The rest of my time is spent keeping some
vintage cars on the road.
