I’m a retired pilot qualified on both fixed wing and helicopters. The bulk of my flying career was with Transport Canada, the Canadian aviation regulator, and Nav Canada, the air navigation system operator. Back in 1964/65 I worked as an air traffic controller in Gander located in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  After forty one years living in New Brunswick it was time to come home. A one acre lot was available on the family farm so we're now moved into our new home. I became licensed in 1995 and my callsign from New Brunswick was VE9GFD.

If you go to the listed position from my details and look West on Google Earth Streetviews the house is 150 feet from the road.  The physical address is 57 Perth Station Road in the farming community of New Perth.

I run 100w on a Kenwood TS-2000 using a Cushcraft MA-5B.  For VHF I use a Cushcraft A148-10S. My mobile is a Kenwood D710 with APRS capability. The antenna mast was constructed by my cousin who has a well equipped machine shop. The primary member is 2” X 2” aluminum tube inside a 3” X 3” tube. The beam is normally at 24’ and can be extended to 37’. The mast can be tilted over for maintenance and during extreme weather conditions.
