His involvement with the restoration of radio systems aboard HMCS HAIDA started out quite innocently after reading about  Radio 1 in The Canadian Amateur Magazine. After a single visit to the ship in July 1992, he was bitten by the famous “HAIDA bug” thus launching the rebuild of HAIDA’s four radio rooms back to nearly functional order.   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 book "HMCS HAIDA - Battle Ensign Flying" by Barry Gough.
