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/UHF (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 an interest and I have capability in that regard with an ICOM 820H and an Arrow II antenna. I can see that as time goes by, 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 also have an Elk antenna and a Yaesu VX6R handheld for occasional dabbling in the FM birds, especially when portable.  I am working toward a mobile satellite station, and hope to have things together and working for the spring of 2015.

As is usual for most of us, work often gets in the way of playing radio, but I get on when I can and 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.

73, Randy
