... 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.

 

 


           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 !!

The control section (Exciter TS480, Bandecoder, Webswitch & Remoterig unit)

Amplifier selector & AC switching unit (240V)

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.

 



 

VE2OV PORTABLE OPERATION

Time and weather permitting, I operate quite often from islands and lighthouses in the St-Lawrence River.

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.
