Grid Square FN04de, Simcoe County


I was first licensed in March 1984. I had an interest in radio since I played with my parents Telefunken shortwave radio as a child. I upgraded to Advanced class (with CW proficiency) just before the new easy licensing came into this country. I've always been a CW fan and proponent.

Running the Flex 5000 on PSK-31

I collect the Yaesu FT-101 series. If you have something you want to donate, please contact me.
Sorry, I'm not paying the crazy EBay prices. They are old radios and aren't worth anything.

I operate the Cookstown ARC VA3TWO C4FM/FM repeater on 147.150+ . Located in Barrie, Ontario.

I live just over an hour north of Toronto, where I have plenty of land and peace and quiet. I am active on 160-2 metres from home and VHF and UHF mobile. Also an avid TV dx'er, both analog and digital / HDTV.

Preferred mode of operation is digital ( FT8 and JT65/JT9, and MSK on 6m )

QSL via  ARRL's Logbook Of The World only.
Awards: DX Century Club (DXCC) Mixed, 10 & 15 Metres and WAS (Worked All States)
