VE7WY has dismantled my station, moved, and I am QRT for awhile.
I will still answer QSL cards DIRECT, but turn-around may be 4-6 months.
But as always, none via "The Buro".
It's been a fun ride. Thanks to ALL for some GREAT QSOs, and some GREAT friendships made.
73 es GUD DX!

This photo of Mt. Cheam (above, right) was taken looking east from atop my 45-foot tower. My QTH is "a couple of hundred metres above the valley" on the north-east side of Chilliwack Mountain on BC's west coast.
Chilliwack is about 100 kms east of Vancouver.
40m / 30m
I am running a "hybrid" of my 1977 Hygain 402BA 2-element Yagi with a SteppIR "trombone element" as the driven element, and the old linear-loaded Hygain 40m reflector tuned for "CW".
I also re-tuned the old 402BA driven element as a 30m reflector. Does it ever work WELL on BOTH bands! The pile-ups are a snap to crack (and generate) now!!!
- The right element is the SteppIR "Trombone Driven Element"
- The first element to the left of the mast is the "standard" SteppIR reflector
- The next element is the full-sized 30m reflector, made from the remnants of the old 402BA driven element
- The final element on the far left is the original "un-modified" 40m linear-loaded reflector from my old Hygain 402BA, circa 1977!!!!
Considering the short boom-lengths,this 2-element Hygain/SteppIR "hybrid" is an AMAZING performer from 10m to 40m!!!
Full-sized elevated 4-Square. Wire verticals hung amongst the tall trees, feed-point 12-feet off the ground. Only 4 radials per vertical but WOW!!! does that COMTEK box WORK WELL!!! (Now made by DXE).
DX Engineering 480' bi-directional Beverage 12' off the ground with DXE pre-amps. This system WORKS AS ADVERTISED!!!!!!!! It's also AMAZING on 160m.
For the year I was in New Zealand (1990) I also held ZL0ABA.
I usually upload my logs to e-QSL and LoTW each weekend. "Electronic QSL" by either option is my preferred QSL method because it's cheaper and faster!
Gud DX es 73!
