I have been licensed since 1959. My interests include DX, contesting and building my own antennas and hf/vhf equipment. I built a full featured 160-6 meter transceiver (the HBR-2000) that I now use for much of my operating. I also use a Ten-Tec Omni VI+ for contesting.
My antennas include a SteppIR yagi for 40 to 10 Meters and two stacked 5 element yagi's for 6 meters. For 80 Meters I have a Vertical GP with three elevated radials. In November 2012 I changed my 160 meter loop to a inverted L with a LCP (folder counter poise) which I am very happy with. The best 160 meter I have had at this QTH. I use a 160 meter Terminated Low Noise Rotatable Loop for receive. See my web sitehttp://ve7ca.netfor details.
Recently I have become interested in resorting vintage ham radio equipment. I have restored a HQ120X, HQ110A, COLLINS 51J-4 and a Viking Ranger. I have worked lots of DX on CW and on AM many QSO's to the east Coast with only 30 Watts output power. Re-living my youth?
You are invited to check my web site http://ve7ca.net, for details about my homebrew projects, 160 Meter terminated receiving loop and noise canceller as well as a summary of my ARRL publications.
