Hi! My name is Mike. I acquired my Amateur-Radio certificate in 1982 at age 38. DXing ever since, sometimes enjoying a bit of ragchew as well. With 338 DXCC entities confirmed (331 current), I'm still running for a new country, a new island or lighthouse, or special event station or dxpedition.
If you happen to find me on frequency, give me a call, I will be pleased to talk with you. Thanks for looking my page.
Take a look also at my VE2OV/remote page
CLUBLOG OQRS is the best way to get my QSL card fast, direct or buro.
DO NOT send me your card via the buro. It's not necessary.
Search here for QSO with any of my callsigns.
QSL card by mail : Please 3US$ and SAE. Verify first that you are in the log.
Former QTHs and antennas over the years. My first DX antennas was a 20-10m loop.
Then I have been 8 years off the air.
Today I'm retired and living in a condo appartment, operating remote with RemoteRig.com system.
Thanks to my friend Claude, VE2BUB and to Jeff, VA2SS.
This is the log-periodic antenna that i'm using now, at VE2BUB's qth, 35km away from my home.
Time and weather permitting, I operate quite often from islands and lighthouses in the St-Lawrence River.
