Photo is a view of Tottenham, ON, Canada, from the ridge to the east of the village. Unfortunately, the village is in a bit of a valley -- not good for the best of communications.

Tottenham is located about 50 km north of the city of Toronto.

A brief history of the area that I live in :

Tottenham was first settled around 1825.
The hamlet of Tottenham first got its name in 1858, when it was named after Alex Totten,
a pioneer in the area. In 1877, the Hamilton and North-Western Railway (HNWR) was built through
Tottenham, causing the population to increase to 700. Tottenham was incorporated as a village
in 1884. Although the HNWR railway company no longer exists,
a section of its tracks is currently used by the South Simcoe Railway (SSR), a steam heritage railway, operating
passenger excursions to nearby Beeton and back. However, the main Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) line going to
western Canada does pass through Tottenham, as well, although the only station is for the SSR.
Tottenham is now part of a regional municipality called New Tecumseth, created in 1991, whose name is derived
from that of the Shawnee aboriginal chief Tecumseh, who fought and died in the war of 1812 (North American theatre).

My main amateur radio interests :

  • IOTA (Islands on the Air)
  • DXCC (working different countries) (including RTTY, Challenge, and [new for me !] 6 metre band).
  • CISA (Canadian Islands on the Air)

I have attained DXCC Top-of-Honour-Roll (mixed)(08/2009), DXCC Challenge, and IOTA Honour Roll (> 980).

Currently (07/2012), antennas are :

  • 10, 15, 20m : Cushcraft A3 tribander, up 10m high
  • 17, 30, 40m : individual dipoles, each up about 8m high
  • 12 and 80m : use an antenna tuner on the 40m band dipole
  • 6m : use the 30m band dipole (5th harmonic) ; hoping to install a small yagi (someday soon !!)

QSL is OK via direct (if SAE & 1 valid IRC or 2 greenstamps [USA] or 3 greenstamps [non-USA] provided) , bureau, or LoTW (year 2009 and onwards).

Thanks for visiting!
