I was originally licenced in 1964 as VE4FJ but didn't operate a great deal while attending high school and university. In 1970, I moved to British Columbia where my call was VE7AZA, but once again, no time for operating!
1975 found me in Burlington, Ontario with the call VE3CLB. Once the VA series of calls opened up, I obtained VA3DF and at about the same time I got back to operating more regularly on VHF and HF. For a period of time my main radio was a homebrew 30 m. transceiver that put out 1 watt!
In 2002, I discovered contesting and began working contests in the QRP category (with a K2) using a 48 foot tower with a 3 element SteppIR and pieces of wire plus a rotatable dipole for 40 m.
June, 2013, I moved to Waterford, Ontario - out in the country on 4.3 acres of land. I have a 100 foot tower with a 4 element SteppIR and 2 element OptiBeam for 40 m plus wire antennas for 80 and 160 that are currently in a state of flux.
September, 2016 - Added a 430 foot reversible beverage receiving antenna pointed at EU - I love it! Low band antennas currently consist of an inverted V for 80 and an inverted L for 160.
I enjoy DX and contesting - look for me on the bands!
