I've been an Amateur Radio Operator since 1988 and due to a growing large family became inactive for about 15 years. Currently I have a modest station with an 80 meter dipole up about 35 feet, a 40/20 meter fan dipole at 30 feet. I am presently running a Kenwood TS850SAT as the main rig with a Rode NT1A microphone - Art Tube MP pre-amp - Alesis 3630 for noise gate - Hammond 804 transformer - 40db mic attenuation. When needed, I also run and Ameritron AL-811H for propagation down-turn. Faith, Family and the well being of others are most important to me. Ham radio is a hobby and I get so much enjoyment meeting new people on the bands. Prince Edward Island is the smallest province in Canada, and one of the most beautiful places to live; 46deg Latitude and -63deg Longitude, only 139 miles long with 500 miles of beaches surrounding the Island; white sands to the north and red sands and cliffs to the south. The soil on the Island is red and made up of Iron Oxide. It stains clothes easily, but is excellent for grounding systems.
Other interests of mine are guitar and photography.

Below is the Confederation Bridge, said to be the longest bridge in the world over ice covered water. Opened May 31st 1997. 12.9 kilometers long (8 Miles). Connects Prince Edward Island to the mainland in New Brunswick. It took about three and a half years to complete but only takes about 11 minutes to cross.
