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 30 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.  I"m currently a shift-worker as a Dispatcher with the Police, usually only find time for radio on my days off and I'm only off every other weekend.

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 Satellite, 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 Butternut HF-9V Ground Mounted Vertical, D3 Dipole, DXCC Multi Band Dipole. I use Kent and Bencher Paddels.


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


I suppoort NCDXF am Member of RAC, ARRL and CW OP's.





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 goals are to achieve 5B DXCC and A1 OP.  I've still got a long way to go, but that's okay, lot's of fun yet to be had.   DXCC, WAS, WPX CW, and WPX Mixed Honour Roll,  achieved on low  dipoles and Vertical and mostly at 100w.
