Thank you for visiting me on QRZ.COM. I rely on portable antennas to operate SSB from my home or in the field. I have five PAR end-fedz antennas (6, 10, 15, 17 & 20 meters) that I attach to 31' telescopic poles plus a Buddipole kit. The photo of my FT-450D was taken in 2012 on Lake Joseph, near Port Carling, Ontario. The FT-817ND, in the lower photo, was portable QRP on Lake Ontario near my home in St. Catharines.
The photograph at the top of my page shows one of the two old wooden light houses that stands on the east pier at Port Dalhousie in my home town of St. Catharines. Formally known as the Village of Port Dalhousie, it was the Lake Ontario entrance for the first three Welland Ship Canals that raises ships around Niagara Falls to Lake Erie. The fourth Welland Canal, located to the east of Pt. Dalhousie, is a major link in the current St. Lawrence Seaway H2O Highway system that connects the five Great Lakes with the Atlantic ocean.
