New multi-qth qsls are ordered. Should be here before Dayton 2013
Hello fellow hams!
I am a native of Nova Scotia, on Canada's eastern coast. However, I currently live in southwestern New Hampshire. My amateur radio experience began back in 1976, when I was first licensed as WA4UUX. AK4L, my extra call, came quickly, and I held that call till 1996, when I became W1VE. When I went back to Canada for college in 1979, I took the Canadian Amateur Radio tests and first became VE1BXC. Later, I changed that to VE1CER, and finally to VE1RM.
My interest in ham radio led to a job at ARRL HQ, from 1980-83. I worked in the lab and as a QST Assistant Technical Editor. That was back in the days of Doug DeMaw, W1FB, a fine tutor! If you have the 1982 ARRL Handbook, my picture is on the cover, operating my QSK amp and CW keyboard.
Although I've probably done most things in my career as a ham, the most consistant activity has been contest operating. I love contests, especially CW DX and SS. I've never had a super station at home, but I've had the privledge of operating from some of the best in the world: VE1DXA(@VE1YX), VE9DH, VE1ASJ, KY1H/K1TTT, K1ZZ, K1IR, K2LE/1, W2SZ/1, and many others. In the mid-80s I was part of DXpeditions to Sable (CY0) and St. Paul (CY9) Islands as CY0SAB and CY9SPI. Though business and pleasure travel, I had the opportunity to operate as VP2M/VE1RM, KH6/W1VE and as 6Y6C. We often travel to the Canadian Maritimes on vacation, and you may hear me on as VE1RM, VE9XDX, VY2CDX or VO1WIN, all additional calls I hold.
If you enjoy contesting, please post your scores for live, real-time viewing at
My profession is software engineering, and I'm currently working for Amcom Software, a developer of Unified Communications systems and solutions for Healthcare and Hospitality Markets.
