I was licenced in 1991, with the callsign VE3RGU. I currently hold the Canadian Advanced Amateur Licence with CW, along with the land mobile, aeronautical, and maritime radiotelephone operator's licences. I was a Canadian delegated examiner for 6 years, and happily licenced many new hams in that time, many of whom have gone on to fully embrace and enhance the hobby.
My main interests include 6m cw/ssb, activating rare grid squares for VHF (I live in one; DO16), portable, mobile, and maritime mobile DX HF (especially 17m), occasional 160m cw during the winter months, and a little dabbling in HF PSK and RTTY. Satellite operation is a recent interest and I now have capability in that regard with an ICOM 820H. I can see that satellite work is going to become a big interest, just like 6m. The linear transponder birds are the most interesting to me, and I particularly like CW on AO-7 and FO-29 (talk about range on a good pass!)
I'm always happy to give out a rare new grid square, or have a good old fashioned rag chew.
QSL is always 100%. Prefer direct, but the bureau is OK as well.
