Hi, I am an OTR long haul truck driver. (Owner Operator) Until March 2013 I ran mostly Canada only pulling B-trains (5 axle combination trailers) up to 130,000lbs. But I'm now back to doing regular van and flatbed tandem loads (up to 80,000lbs) in Canada and the USA. I am active on most of the HF bands 80-10m usually on one of the digital modes like PSK31 or JT65. I also sometimes get on 6m as well. When I'm working I am almost always on 2m or 440mhz and I can be found running Voice Alert (pl100) on APRS 144.390mhz, You can see me on APRS just look on aprs.fi: http://aprs.fi/#!mt=roadmap&z=11&call=a%2FVE3LFS-14&timerange=86400&tail=86400
I am also a member of the LSRA Lake Simcoe Repeater Association, which runs a few local reparters (VE3LSR) on 2m and one on 6m all with great coverage! More info on the LSRA, (Including IRLP and asterisk node #'s) can be found on their website:http://www.ve3lsr.ca/
My current setup:
Rig: Icom-706 for HF and a Kenwood TM-D 710A for 2m APRS and 440mhz. Also Yaesu FT-2900R for 2m
ANT TRUCK: Workman WHF-20, WHF-40, WHF-75, WHF-17 Verticals for each band all mounted on the back of my cab.
A Workman WEP-2000 glass mount for 2m/ 70cm. Also a 5/8 wave Hustler for 2m.
ANT HOME QTH: G5RV at about 30ft
Interface: Signalink USB
Usually I run 100w SSB, up to 75w 2m and 440mhz, and 10-25w PSK31 and JT65.
Thanks for the QSO and looking me up. I will respond to your QSL cards via Bureau, direct, e-QSL or LOTW
Please if you work me while mobile and want to send e-QSL send it to my regular call with no /p ect.... as e-QSL is a nightmare when it comes to mobile operations.
