I began as VE3PE2GE SWL in 1961 using a Marconi R1155A , which my Dad brought home at the end of WWII. Finally in 1976 , I received my ham ticket; and my first call VE3ICR. In December 1993 I changed to VA3DX , altho I still keep the VE3ICR call also. I have operated from Montserrat VP2M/VE3ICR in 1986 and often in January since as 8P9DX.

When at 8P9DX in January, I enter in the CQ WW 160 meter CW contest.

I also operated as CI8C in 1988, at Resolute Bay, Nunavet Terr; also holding the call VE8GW. In 1989 I travelled to the USSR and operated /ua1 /ua3 ...

I prefer CW, RTTY and some SSB, on any band. I have currently 270 countries confirmed on Top Band, this has taken 26 years. Sort of difficult in the city with no beverage antennas and lots of local city noise.

I have all countries worked and confirmed on SSB. , 339 on CW , need the P5 ( cw ) of course, and currently 337 on RTTY.

Since May 2006 I have worked / confirmed 116  countries on 50 mhz !! Now qrv every Sporatic E season on 6 meters, looking forward to F2. I just recently aquired a Heathkit SB220 from the estate of my friend Bill WA2MNM ( SK ). This has now been converted to a single band 6 meter amp, good for 900 watts output with a pair of 40 year old 3-500's !

I am 64 years old and have 2 grown daughters; 39 and 36 yrs of age, plus 2 grandsons. My EX-wife decided she did not like the radio, HI HI !!

Equipment:

Yaesu FT1000MP - Elecraft K3

ALPHA 76A , now using a pair of 3CPX800A7's

Heathkit SB220 (converted single band 6 meter amp now )

Now have a new puppy " Buddie " a black Cock-a-poo .... who carries on the tradition of stealing my socks whenever possible.

I live on a average city lot, with lots of hydro, cable and telephone lines above ground. No room for any beverages etc...

My qth is 20 km west of Niagara Falls , Ontario. My city has a population of 135,000 .

The Niagara area is the Wine producing area of Ontario . I am about 1 mile west of the

Welland Ship Canal, which connects Lake Ontario to Lake Erie.

I enjoy contesting and DXing.....and 6 meters !

All qsos confirmed by LOTW , direct or by bureau( slow )

For direct USA qsl's need $1.00 USA

Hope to see you on the bands.. Glenn VA3DX VE3ICR 8P9DX
