jp_photo.jpg Jerry Proc, VE3FAB, a resident of Etobicoke Ontario, has been a licensed amateur radio operator since 1964 and also holds an Advanced Amateur Radio Operator's Certificate. His interest in electronics was sparked at a very young age and during the 1960's Jerry developed a fascination with military radio gear. In 1970, he graduated with a diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology from the Radio College of Canada. Later, he obtained an Advanced Networking Certificate through Continuing Education Studies program at Humber College, Etobicoke Ontario. Jerry has served in both a technical and managerial capacity in the mainframe computer and data communications field since 1970 and is currently employed as a network support specialist by Bell Canada.

His involvement with the restoration of radio systems aboard HMCS HAIDA started out quite innocently in July of 1992. It has now developed into a very engrossing and stimulating endeavour. In October 1999, his efforts to restore HAIDA's radio rooms and other significant contributions were recognized by the Historic Naval Ships Association and awarded Jerry the Bos'n Marvin Curry award, the first Canadian to receive it. In early 2001, Jerry's research work on radio and radar was officially recognized and incorporated into the Appendices of the new book "HMCS HAIDA - Battle Ensign Flying" by Barry Gough. 

Since 1971, he has been happily married to Dori, his wonderful wife of all these years. Since then, they have raised three sons, Jeffery, Jason and David. To see Jerry's other web pages, please reference the index at:
