VE2OV REMOTE STATION

After 8 years inactive (2005-2013) I am very glad to be back to amateur radio.

I am now retired and living in a condo. No antenna allowed here, period.sad

Fortunately enough I can operate remote, thanks to my friend Claude VE2BUB.

Special thanks to Jeff, VA2SS, for his help in computing. 

Unless I am signing portable, I operate from home with this system, available from RemoteRig.com

VE2OV's remote site (antennas & radio station) is at VE2BUB's QTH, 35 km from my home.

 

 


VE2OV REMOTE STATION

The control section : 

Remoterig and Webswitch, Bandecoder, 12V Power supply, swr/power meter & webcam,

exciter (Kenwood TS480sat), and also the amplifiers & antennas automatic selection unit.

Hidden behind the rack is the Dowkey automated antenna relay and 5kw dummy load.

 

Below : The 240v AC automatic amplifier switching unit.

 

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 modified full QSK, and tuned to the center of the band in use.

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

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

Stripped out 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.

MONTREAL Downtown, QC

 

Montreal Jacques-Cartier Bridge, over the St-Lawrence River.

 

Biosphere (former USA Pavillon, Expo67)

 

(THOUSAND ISLANDS) THE SMALLEST CANADA / USA FRONTIER. Left island is in Canada, right island is in the USA.
