QSL Info - Please note that I am not a serious QSL card person. Will highly recommend you do not send me your card, especially if you are looking for a card in return. You may be waiting many many years for my return card. Having your contact in my log is more than satisfying enough for me. There are many station from Nova Scotia who are active and do exchange cards, please exchange your QSL with one of them. Thank you. Exhanging QSL cards has never interested me.

I became interested in Amateur Radio in 1974 as a volunteer operator in Alert. Alert is located in Canada's High Arctic and up until the mid 1980's the station relied on volunteers along with some licensed amateurs to pass the phone patch traffic for the military and civilian personnel serving at this remote location in northeastern Canada. A satellite image of CFS Alert is now available on Google Earth, just go to the northeastern tip of Elsemere Island and you will find the world's most northerly settlement, to this day.

In 1996 while serving my final of six tours in Alert, and operating the HAM station as a DX station with few to no phone patches I obtained my ticket and my first call sign was VE3GLO.

In 2009 I retired from the Canadian Forces after serving over 36 years and have now settled in Hantsport, Nova Scotia with my new call sign of VE1RSM.

My highlight in amateur radio was in September of 2008 when I was asked to lead a small team of Operators back to Alert and brign VE8RCS(VY0) on the air to help celebrate the 50th anniversay of CFS Alert. Other than the solar flare which occurred on the 3rd day which really made contacts a struggle the four of us: myself (VE3GLO), Scott |(VA3XA), Les (VE3KFS) and Ken (VE3SRS), all former operators of VE8RCS had a wonderful time and enjoyed the chance to operate from the station for two weeks.

I enjoy the hobby, and enjoy the contacts be they short with DX stations or ragging chewing with friends and other amateurs.

I do try to participate in most of the CW contests and even some SSB ones, but with mainly wire antennas and 100 watts contacts are not the easiest at this time.
