QSL update (June 18, 2013): I have to apologize but I am a bit behind answering the QSL requests (due to personal circumstances). I plan to clear the back log by the end of June. 6Y2T LOG will be also uploaded to LOTW in the mid-June. Sorry for delay.
The PZ5T, TO2U, FP/VE3DZ, V31UZ, ZF1DZ, N2WCQ/6W1, PZ5TT and VE3DZ/VP9 LOGs are on LOTW now.
Also, due to the high work load and travel volume I will not be able to reply to individual e-mails (something like - "Please look if you already mailed my card", or "Would you please check if I am in your LOG".). I apologize for that, I simply don't have time to go through all the boxes with cards and through all my LOGs. If you mailed your card, you will receive a reply eventually!
Got involved with HAM Radio in 1974 at the age of 13. We had a club station at my High School and my older sister'sclass mate was one of the operators (UK4LAC).
I made my first QSO was with UK7JAC from Kazakhstan in September of 1974, and on that same day I had few more SSB contacts, including a big DX for me at that time - LU1DVR. I got hooked up right away and by the end of 1974 I completed Morse Codecourse at the local Youth and Pioneers Palace and was able to participate in the first CW Contest on my own - RAEM CW in December of 1974. BTW, my first ever Contest was CQ WW DX SSB 1974 (as one of the ops of UK4LAC M/S effort) and first CW Contest was CQ WW DX CW 1974 as a part of UK4LAA M/S Team. Got my first own license in 1977 with personal UA4LAR call sign. From 1974 to 1977 I was very active S.W.L. mailing out hundreds of cards.
While studying at the Kiev Polytechnical Institute (now Kiev Technical University) I was one of the most active operators of UK5UDX Club Station. Later in the 80s and early 90s I was the Chief and Trustee of the Club Station at the Institute of Civil Aviation Engineers in Kiev, Ukraine - UT4UXW (RT1U, RY1U).
Moved to Canada in 1998, former call - VA3UZ (1998-2002). Changed it to VE3DZ in May of 2002, because a lot of people would confuse VA3 with UA3 on the air.Also holding VE2IM call sign which I mostly use for my annual trips to Zone 2 in Northern Quebec, as well as VO1AAM and VY2IA.
Lived in Toronto for over 14 years, but lifegoes on and now I live in the beautiful Niagara-On-The-Lake area, 15 minutes drive from Niagara Falls, ON and 25 minutes drive from Buffalo, N.Y.
