I was first licensed as a ham in 1971 and my callsign then was VE3FKK. My first rig was a borrowed Eico 723, 60 watts CW only transmitter and an Eddystone 888A receiver. My thanks to Bob VE3GG (sk) and Bob VE3KZ for their patience.
When I started working fulltime, I bought the Yaesu Twins, the FR-101 receiver and the FL-101 transmitter and then, after a couple of years, I bought the FL-2100 linear.
In 1992 I was granted a two letter call.
The station is: Kenwood TS-480SAT, Heathkit SB-610 scope, MFJ-624D phone patch, Heathkit HM-2140A SWR/PWR meter and a ClearSpeech DSP speaker. The antennas are a Hy-Gain TH5-DXX on a 50 foot self-supporting Delhi tower and a G5RV up 40 feet for all of the other bands.
I enjoy contesting and I host the Field Day festivities every year for the Nortown Amateur Radio Club. Look for us as VE3NAR. I also participate in the Canada Day Contest, BARTG RTTY contests and some others.
I work mostly 20 meters and you can find me most times on 14.300 MHz. I have been the Assistant Net Manager of the Maritime Mobile Service Network since 1993. I have been with the net since 1982, when a friend introduced it to me. Thanks to Don VE3IOR (sk)
You may also find me on 14.070Mhz doing some JT65....
73....see you on the air
