I am a fairly new to amateur radio, having received my basic license for VHF/UHF in the winter of 1999, and my advanced and code in the fall of 2000.
At present my station consists of a Yaseu FT-847, an Explorer 14 quad-bander,(40, 20, 15, & 10) at 50 feet, 17 el 2M beam at 55 feet, a 80M wire dipole, and a 2M/70cm Arrow about 45 feet high. There is also an APRS beacon if you want to find my exact QTH.
I am developing an interest in VHF/UHF weak signal work, and I am also active on 2 meters FM locally here in the Ottawa, Canada area, usually on the VE3MPC repeater. (147.150 MHz) Drop in Thursday nights at 20:00 for the Phoenix Net, which I host.
My interest in amateur radio was sparked as a teenager in the sixties, by VE3DJZ who lived down the street from me. Although I have always had a shortwave receiver, it took 35 years to get my license!
