I've been interested in radio and short wave since ----- well it has been a long time. My first "real" receiver, a Hallicrafters S-38, was purchased used with $25.00 of hard earned allowance. Over the years I upgraded to a Hammarlund SP-600 and carried it around the USA, Central America and Canada. In 1987 I finally found the time to get my amateur radio licence and VE7ASR was my first callsign.

The times have changed and the ham radio equipment has advanced in leaps and bounds. As can be seen from my web site (http://www.ve7tk.com/), my HF equipment is now all TEN-TEC. In 2005 I acquired a gently used TEN-TEC Orion! Doris, my XYL, is very understanding and she was getting tired of seeing me always up the tower repairing the 2-element quad. So, with her blessing, I installed a 3-element SteppIR yagi on my 48 foot free-standing tower in February 2006. The Orion and SteppIR combination is truly amazing.

I enjoy SSB, ARDF, CW, and digital modes. However, chasing DX is my real passion. In 2012, after 25 years of operating, I finally made the Honor Roll and I have worked 334 and confirmed 333 of the current 340 entities with only 6 more needed to reach top of the Honor Roll - (March 2014). Number 334 was Iran and getting a QSL may prove to be - let's say - difficult.

Here are are the last 30 entries in my logbook.

My current quest is to work 5 band DXCC and in 2012 I installed a DX Engineering 43 foot vertical to improve my count on 80 metres. About the same time I installed a K9AY receive antenna. In the summer of 2013 I built a switched matching network for 80/160 (designed by Phil AD5X) for the vertical to provide a better match to the coaxial feed at the base of the antenna. At this time (April 2014) I have worked 109 entities on 80 metres and have 102 of those confirmed.

As can be seen from my web site, my HF equipment is TEN-TEC. I enjoy SSB, ARDF, CW, and Digital modes. However, chasing DX is my real passion. Since retiring from working on air quality issues in British Columbia in 2002 I have attempted to update and modernize my shack. Obviously, this is a process that never ends and is limited only by time and money!

 

If you hear me on the air please don't hesitate to give me a call.

73, Rick VE7TK / VE7ASR
