VE2OV REMOTE STATION
I am now retired and living in a condo. No antenna allowed here, period.
Fortunately enough I can operate remote, thanks to my friend Claude VE2BUB.
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.
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.
Most of the gear shown below in the left rackmount is designed and built by himself.
That takes time and patience, but the result is very rewarding.
Special thanks also to Jeff,VA2SS, who helped to configurate the RemoteRig and Webswitch.

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