My QTH is near Malmo Alberta, Canada on a farm which is on the east side of Wetaskiwin County. This area was first settled by Swedish immigrants, hence the name Malmo.

Wetaskiwin is a Cree word which is translated literally "the hills where peace was made" . Led by Cree Chief,  Maskepetoon,  this is the place where the plains Cree made peace with the Blackfoot in the mid 1800s.

A Flower-class corvette of the Royal Canadian Navy was given the name HMCS Wetaskiwin during WWII.

I have been interested in radios most of my life, inspired by my grandfather and his amazing crystal radios. I have been licensed since 2000 initially operating  VHF and listening  to HF and SW with an ICOM R-70 reciever until I set up my first HF station in 2012 (Kenwood TS-130 SE) with an OCF multiband dipole.

My current HF station consists of a Kenwood TS-820S and an ICOM 718. My antennas consists of a multiband windom antenna and a 80 meter inverted vee.

I have just entered the world of PSK31 with the addition of a Rigblaster plus interface. See you down the waterfall.

My station as it exists today.

I also operate HF (ICOM 706) and VHF mobile. You can follow me (VA6HD) on mortorcycle trips via APRS (Yaseu VX-8GR).
