Hi, I am an OTR long haul truck driver. Until March 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. If we have had a QSO it was likely while I was portable or mobile while in my truck as I am on the road more than I am home. You can see me on APRS just look on aprs.fi for VE3LFS-9 or VE3LFS-14
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, or e-QSL. (LOTW soon)
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.
Woke up to a bit of fresh early morning snow. (Near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)
Doing some antenna work at my parents QTH.
