I received my Amateur Radio Certificate in May of 1980 with the call sign of VE6BMD. Using that call sign for some ten years, I then applied for and received the present call sign VE6KD.
The fascinating world of amateur radio had always intrigued me and continues to do so.
I love DXing, rag chewing, contesting and especially, making new friends. I also find digital modes quite intriguing.
I also operate a contest station and with the help of fellow contest enthusiasts, work several contests during the year. The RAC Canada Day Contest and the RAC Winter Contest are two that we enjoy.
Promoting amateur radio by talking about it, giving demonstrations and inviting Scout groups to my station are some of the ways that I promote the hobby. It is very rewarding when others become interested and involved in ham radio and succeed in receiving their certificate.
