This site is a tribute to the late Gary Bourgois

Gary passed away on 11-15-2005.

Binky (AKA Velcra, AKA Hosercat)


Gary was a pioneer on C-Band (and later on on Ku band) Satellite TV. He ran the Great White North BBS (Lopez).

Gary made you feel like you were part of his family. He had fun with satellite, radio, ham radio, TV and computer technologies.

I am looking for memorabilia that I will be making available here on this website. It is here for those who followed Gary in his hobby (and way of life for him).
