QSL AND OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT STATION VE1SKY (and VE1XZ)

My interest is in radio - I rarely chase awards or cards. If you would like a QSL from VE1SKY, I will gladly help you with your request.

Please request my station's QSL card by direct mail (preferred) or the bureau. If you request a QSL card from VE1SKY by direct mail and want to be assured of a direct reply you should cover CANADIAN postage by including sufficient CANADIAN postage stamps or one of the following acceptable equivalents:

* For Canadian requests - one US or Canadian dollar;

* For ALL OTHER requests - two US dollars.

QSL requests that lack sufficient CANADIAN postage or equivalents will be sent via the bureau. A self addressed envelope is not necessary for direct requests, but always appreciated.

VE1SKY RADIO ACTIVITY

I enjoy working many aspects of HF, VHF, & UHF bands including, but not limited to digital modes, meteorscatter and some satellites. My emphasis in radio is on quality QSOs, efficient contesting/DXing and operating. Station VE1SKY has very modest power and antennas. By employing propagation forecasts/anomalies, operator perseverance, and any other advantages I can figure out - I like to give the East Coast "Big Guns" a friendly nudge (e.g. see Canada QSO slots for T32C, Christmas Island (East Kiribati) - http://www.t32c.com/T32C_Log_Search.

Six meters is often a favorite band with me. I enjoy contesting, although not incessantly, using various modes on both HF and VHF - e.g. North America Record 80m SOLP Assisted CQWW SSB and NA 2012 SOLP Meteorscatter Winter Rally. I am grateful to have been part of the successful VE1JF Contest team, operating Jim's "dream station", high on a cliff, overlooking the Bay of Fundy. Don Moman, VE6JY, http://alfaradio.ca/ve6jy.html was an early radio friend and mentor. He demonstrated SWL DXing and DXpeditions to me and taught me how to "listen to radio".

When transmitting from station VE1SKY or VE1XZ, I typically run LP and explore the amateur challenge without the power.

EME 'SKY' AWARD GOES TO SUPERSTATION KB8RQ FOR 1ST MOONBOUNCE WITH NON-EME STATION VE1SKY

On March 20, 2012 KB8RQ, Gary EM79 worked VE1SKY (2m, non-elevating LPDA,160w) during moonset. Many tried for the prize. VE1SKY was in a lobe between 11-14 degrees and copied Gary -20 dB. Gary, who had only decoded a "CQ VE1SKY FN74" once during perigee in February, was able to see a good trace all through the March 20th QSO. I thank Gary for all his patience. After about eight attempts over February and March, we got it done. VE1SKY was never designed to be an EME station. Gary has one of the best "big gun" EME stations in the world. Working VE1SKY proves that!
