I am born in December 1943, and I got my Amateur-Radio certificate in February 1982. 

 

If you happen to find me on frequency, give me a call, I will be pleased to exchange with you.

Thanks for looking my page.

My first rig was a Heathkit SB-104A that I assembled. I was not a tech, and it worked straight off !

My first "good" antenna was a 20m loop. I contacted more than 200 countries with it, barefoot.

 


 

From 1994 to 2005, I had my summer qth on Ile-du-Fort (Canadian island # QC-050).

The top beam was a home built 10 to 20m "Telerana" 13 el. log-periodic, at 39m ASL, 

replaced by a Force-12 C-3 in 1999. The mid-tower beam was a HyGain 204BA.

 

December 2005, I was forced to cease operation, very sadly. 

 

May 2006, the tower and antennas were taken down, and sold.

 Then I have been 8 years off the air.

 

Today I'm retired and living in a condo. No antenna allowed here, period. 

 

One day of March 2013 at a local hamfest, I met Jeff, VA2SS, who was demonstrating his 

RemoteRig.com system.

 

 

The day after, my friend Claude, VE2BUB, suggested me that we build a well equipped remote controlled station at his qth, and permit me to use his antenna system.

 

What we did. With his help I was back on the air within a month!

 

Thanks so much, Claude.

VE2OV PORTABLE OPERATION  

 Whenever possible, I enjoy holliday style operation on the St-Lawrence River islands and lighthouses. 

My modest portable set-up consists of a Yaesu FT857D, 100w. Antenna is ground plane or dipole.


  


Also I operate sometimes from EXPO islands (VE2OV/p, Canadian Island # QC-011, but not IOTA)

Vintage photo (1967) of the Montreal World Fair, reorganised today for the F-1 Grand-Prix (2014).

 


 


           VE2OV REMOTE STATION           

VE2OV's remote radio station and antennas are located at VE2BUB's QTH, 35 km from my home.

Antennas are Tennadyne T-8 log-periodic 20-10m at 18m high, and inv Vs on 40, 80, & 160m.

 

 

Credit for that professionnal installation goes to my friend Claude, VE2BUB.

Claude has years of experience in the broadcast industry.

Here is how he put to work some old amps with a control system of new technology.

All the gear shown here has been modified by himself and optimised for flawless performance.

That takes time and patience, but the result is very rewarding.

ONE AMP PER BAND

Each amplifier is full QSK, and tuned to the center of the band in use.

Needless to say that only ONE amplifier is running at a time !!

Modified canadian made TMC autotune 1,5kw amplifier with 8 preset channels on 160/80/40m.

Stripped out vintage SB220 rebuilt for 17/12m. Separate pi-networks & automatic bandswitching.

 


 


Besides amateur-radio, I play music (bass guitar) in a blues band, do some photo, and also hiking.
