Good afternoon,

Yesterday the the 182nd edition of the Montreal St. Patrick's Day Parade headed down Sainte Catherine Street and Amateur Radio operators from the Montreal Amateur Radio Club and the West Island Amateur Radio Club are part of the reason for the success of today's parade. The following amateurs provided communications at the parade today:

  • Jim Nagle, KF4OD
  • Steven Faguy, VA2SMF
  • François Daigneault, VE2AAY
  • Ike Tamigian, VE2IKE
  • Stan Paticic, VE2QXP
  • Raymond Faguy, VA2RY/VE2SJA
  • Frank Torontour, VE2CII/VE2TOR

As well, both James Hay, VE2VE and myself (VE2MBS) operated at the control station on both the leased commercial and amateur radio networks.

Before James and I left, we were thanked by members of the organizing committee for providing the communications at this event.
