Meet your course instructor

Hi, my name is Gilles and my call sign is VE3NPI. I have been in Ham Radio as it’s commonly known since July of 1982, been a while. A friend got me started in this wonderful hobby. I took a course and was able to pass my Basic Certificate in the early part of July 1982. Studied some more and got my Advance certificate about a year and a half later. I have been a member of a few clubs since and having a ball at it. I later received my Accredited Examiner from ISED and have been giving exams to potential Ham operators ever since. Now I’m venturing out into another chapter of the hobby, Online Course.
