THANKS for looking me up and I am pleased to meet you. First some information about my province, it is made up of two geographic areas, Labrador (VO2) and and the island portion, Newfoundland (VO1). Located in the North Atlantic, the island land mass is triangular in shape: it's sides approximately 550 kilometers long with a geographical area of 112,000 km square.It is the most easterly point in North America. A former colony and dominion of the United Kingdom it became the tenth province to enter the Canadian federation in 1949. With a population of only 1/2 million people and a total land area of approximately 405,000km square, it offers exceptional opportunities for outdoor activities such as fishing and hunting. Never further than one hours drive from the sea coast which is over 9000 km long , the island offers awe-inspiring landscape providing for many seasonal adventures and a photographers paradise.

ABOUT the operator:

My interest in electronics and Amateur Radio has been life long, it started as a short wave listener and builder at a very young age. The hobby never seems to get old, especially in recent years  with the integration of computer technology. The digital modes add a new dimension to low power communications.  First licensed in 1964, active on cw, ssb, rtty and bpsk, I  can be heard (if conditions cooperate) on 160 to 6 meters including 17&12. I still enjoy the building aspect of the hobby, however most of my construction is now in the antenna area.


During the summer while driving or when the sports fishing is slow I can be heard mobile on the HF bands. I especially enjoy 17 and 40 meter mobile.

Below are some pictures of the hundreds of rivers and lakes that are here on the island.
