 About the Book 

We all go through lifes journey with a story to tell. There were many remarkable tales to be told of a way of life that existed nowhere else on earth. Many have now disappeared forever- mine is one story that will be told. Anyone who has lived in the north of Canada, or any isolated place, would be interested in my story. Anyone involved in aviation services in the 1950s, history buffs, people with an interest in radio communications and its early history, particularly the use of wireless radio technology and international Morse code- the practice of which was a major part of my early career- will enjoy what lies within these pages. It is my experience as an aeradio wireless operator which makes my story unique. Aeradio is by definition a flight services specialty which no longer exists, but was once an integral part of all air travel communication. That form of communication ended in 1960. As the technology increased, the keys and bugs which were the radio operators primary tools, slowly became silent. However, there are still radio enthusiasts who practice wireless radio as a hobby today. My experience as an aeradio wireless operator, along with the special memories of many friends and family who have enriched my life immensely, is my story.
