I have been licensed since 1992 and enjoy chasing the DX or a quality rag chew. I am a hobby musician and play lead/rythem guitar , bass guitar, percussion and do my own vocals. My music consists of mainly classic rock and up beat blues stylings. I invite hams or anyone for that matter to visit my music web page at www.myspace.com/robcalver you will have to type the web page into your search engine. The link here does not work. It would be really great to increase the number of visits and listeners to my site , making music that nobody hears is not very inspiring. My ham station consists of a Yaesu FT 2000, Sp 2000 speaker, MD 100 A8X desk mike. I use Yaesu FT 840 for back up to drive an Ameritron AL-811 H when needed. My antennas are simple a Hygain TH3 mark four at 50/55 feet or about 15/16 meters, Cushcraft R7 vertical which I use on 17 and 12 meters and 40 meters for dx . I have a Buxcomm Windom type antenna which is at 25/30feet. It is a great cloud warmer for closer in contacts on 40 and 80 meters.For 2 meters I have an Icom 2200H and a little four element beam at 40 feet. With my very average antennas I have worked and confirmed all but 2 entities . For qsling on e-qsl but I do not participate in LTOW. I also still have hard copy cards please send via Bureau if at all possible. I will send direct to someone in great need of a card for an award etc, please if you can afford enclose 1 IRC or $2 US that be most helpful. The present cost to send an International card from Canada is $1.82 and is likely to go up again some time in 2013. All the best in 2013 and good dxing.
