>>>Hi! My name is Louis-Michel Dugal. On the air Mike sounds cooler! The primary picture above shows my first shack and rig Heathkit SB-104A. I acquired my Amateur-Radio certificate in 1982 at age 38. My interest ever since has been DXing on the HF bands, looking to log a new country, a new IOTA island or a new lighthouse, and enjoying a bit of ragchew as well. During my early amateur years I could only operate on weekends, barefoot with a simple dipole or loop antenna, so I learned very quickly that patience and operating skill would go a long way. To date as of May 2015, my DXCC count is 332 current entities confirmed (339 with deleted), still needing a few uninhabited reefs and two countries (P5 & XX9). Be there when he's there, as they say. Well, not so easy at times, but that's the thrill of amateur radio.
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.
As I operate remote most of the time, I invite you to look also my VE2OV/remote page

If you need my QSL, ClubLog OQRS is the best way.
Direct cards will be answered a.s.a.p, buro cards every 3 months or so.
I can also confirm our QSO via email with a QSL picture that you can print.
If you still prefer regular mail, please include 3US$ and self addressed envelope.
Please verify first if you are in the log. Not in log or contact errors = NO QSL.
Below here are pictures of my first DX antennas (20-10m loop) and triband dipole.
Antennas at my former QTH, Ile du Fort, Qc (Can is. QC-050):
30meters high Trylon tower, home made logperiodic (Telerana) at top, replaced by Force12 C-3, and 204BA beaming Europe.
For very sad reason, I was forced to cease operation in Dec 2005... Then I have been 8 years off the air.
Today I'm retired and living in a condo, operating remote with RemoteRig.com system.
Thanks to my friend Claude, VE2BUB and to Jeff, VA2SS.

ZAVIKON ISLAND in the Thousand Islands is deemed to be THE SMALLEST CANADA / USA FRONTIER).
The tale says: Left island is in Canada, right island is in the USA. Really both islands are in Canada.
