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 like to get on 6m as well, when it's open. 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: 1 Comet 2x4SR for 2m, 440mhz and APRS

ANT HOME QTH: G5RV at about 30ft for HF,  and a Maple Leaf Communications DIP6 Dipole for 6m, at about 35ft.

Interface: Signalink USB

Usually I run 100w SSB, up to 75w 2m and 440mhz, and less than 20w 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.
