I've been an Amateur Radio Operator since 1988. Currently I have a modest station with a 40/20/10 meter fan dipole antenna up about 30 feet and an 80 meter dipole. My rig is a Kenwood TS850SAT with a Rode NT1A microphone - Art Tube MP pre-amp 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 my favorite 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. '73 & God Bless.
PEI had a blizzard on February 15-16, 2015... here are a couple pictures Mr. Landry of Summerside PEI posted on Facebook.
This gives an indication of the size of some of the drifts Summerside experienced with winds of excess 130 km blowing around 80cm of snow.
At least after all that shoveling, he found his car.

We also have a historic connection with the New England States. Check out the history on the Yankee Gale of 1851. http://www.islandregister.com/yankeegale.html
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.

G0EVY and a bunch of us gather on 40 meters most evenings around 0200 UTC. Everyone's welcome! Once winter sets in, we move to 80 meters; Around and about 3.786 Mhz.
G0EVY base antenna is impressive, as is his mobile setup... See photos below.
