Thanks for looking me up. I am located in Guelph Ontario, a city with a population of about 130,000 located about 100km (60 miles) southwest of Toronto.

Presently I have a Flex 5000A, a Yaesu FT-1000MP, for HF with Yaesu Fl-2100B, Ameritron Al-811 and AL-84 linears. I use a Palstar AT1500DT tuner.

For VHF/UHF I have the Flex VU5K as well as a Kenwood TS-790A for satellite work, an Icom IC-275H, an Icom 475H. I also have a Kuhne TR 144H +40 transverter for weak signal work on 2m. For 222MHz I have an Alinco DR235 MkIII

I also have two "boat anchors" a Hallicrafters SX-28 from 1941 and a RCA AR88LF from 1944 which weighs in at 100lbs, both in good working condition.

My antennas are a roof mounted Butternut HF-9V vertical and an 80m dipole for HF. Two Directive Systems 6 element Yagis for 2m SSB, two Directive Systems 15 element 70cm Yagis, two dual band Workman antennas for 2m/70 cm verticals and a single dipole for 6m.

I enjoy amateur radio very much and have found it to be a great and ongoing learning experience. I am enjoying meeting people on the airwaves and have been very impressed by the friendly and helpful community of radio amateurs that I have so far encountered.

My VHF/UHF setup showing the ICOM IC-475H, 70cm unit on top, the ICOM IC-275H 2m unit in the middle and the Kewood TS-790A below.

On the upper right is my WaveNode power/SWR meter for HF, as well as VHF and UF and on the left is the Yaesu G-5400B azimuth/elevation control box with computer control interface. Various audio processing devices are used, post transceiver, to reduce signal noise and boost intelligibility.



My VHF/UHF antennas - 70cm, 15 element Yagis on the bottom from Directive Systems and two 6 element 2m Yagis also from Directive Systems on top.

Two verticals for 70cm and 2m. The antenna in the center of the roof is a Butternut HF-9V. The radials, 32 in all, are spread across the sloping roof. I also have an 80m dipole and a 70 cm 5 element Yagi mounted for vertical polarization repeater work.
