We received this request from Brian Wallace –
I was very interested to read about the radio shop and those connected to it in NetLetter #1341. I am indeed a licensed radio ham ( G7 MVN ) and I wonder if you could tell me if the radio shop is still at Dorval and if so please could you tell me more about its workings of the present time.

June 8, 1968: James Earl Ray, an American criminal convicted of assassinating civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr, was captured while trying to fly out of the United Kingdom using a false Canadian passport. At check-in, the ticket agent noticed the name on the fake passport, Ramon George Sneyd, was on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police watch list. The United Kingdom quickly extradited Ray back to the United States where he was to have his trial in the US state of Tennessee, where Dr. King was assassinated.
