Greetings and thanks for looking me up on QRZ.com // All QSL's returned via method received ... Direct, Buro, EQSL, no longer use LOTW.

I have been a Ham Radio Op for just about 25 years now. A retired Navy Radioman, my favorite mode has always been CW, but I do blow the dust off my Mic from time to time. I use RTTY and PSK Modes every now and then.

Live in the city of St. John's, the capital city of Newfoundland. GN37... I live just a Km or so from Historic Signal Hill which overlooks the City of St. John's and is the site where on Dec 12, 1901, Marconi received the first transatlantic wireless signal. If you work me via AO-51, or AO-27, chances are that I was operating from that site (mobile) as I often go up there to take advantage of the elevation.

 

 

 

 

I participate in the odd contest, usually just for an hour or two due too my Station Manager, Margaret, who can usually find something else that I should be doing :o) I can usually get on the air during weekdays and evenings without much difficulty to chase a little DX provided that my dog Keddy does not want to go for another Walk. :o)

 

I was a former VE1 and picked up my VO1 callsign when I retired and moved back home in 2004... My current station consists of an Ft-2000 with Ten Tec Centurion and a Butternun HF-9V Ground Mounted Vertical. Kent Paddels. Planning on setting up a remote station in near future allowing me to put up some larger antennas.

 

Have been active with several Ham Radio Clubs over the years. At present I am a member of the Society of Newfoundland Radio Amateurs our Club website is: www.sonra.ca and AVRAC see www.avrac.com

 

 

 

Was a Bug man for many years, but once I went to the Dark Side and started using Paddles, I've lost the touch and cannot send anywhere near as good as I could previously with my Bug, almost always use the paddles and my rig's built in keyer now which makes sending pretty easy but yet not as personal as using a REAL Key :o) Oh well ! At least I'm not using a Keyboard! Well, not yet anyways !

Just recently upgraded my Bencher Paddles for a Key from Kent, I would recommend either, both are FB.

I call this pic "Dressed for CW" I was about to head out for a Naval Mess Dinner one evening and thought this would make for a neat Photo.

Thanks for the QSO, be it a quick DX or Contest contact or a good ol Rag Chew. I don't get on the air as much as I'd like too but when I do, I always enjoy our wonderful Hobby.   My goal to to achieve 5B DXCC, I've stil got a long way to go, but that's okay, lot's of fun yet to be had.   DXCC and WAS achieved on low (20ft) dipole and Vertical and mostly at 100W.

Dstar on VO1TZ Node B.... I've been hanging around on REF001C lately as there is lots of activity there. Also REF 16B for Canadian Content.
