Ham Member Lookups: 346


I just got my Radio Licence from Industry Canada in August/2016. So I apologize beforehand for operating mistakes, I'm sure I'm making plenty of them. I'm a Brazilian Engineer, graduated in EE at UFRN Natal, Brazil, M.Sc. in Computer Engineering at Boston University in Boston, MA. And currently I'm domiciled in Oakville, on the shores of LakeĀ Ontario, 25km west of Toronto.

Besides Ham Radio, which is my new curiosity, I am also a FAA and ANAC-licenced Commercial Pilot. Trying to get my Transport Canada ticket, which ain't easy - Industry Canada was much easier by comparison.smiley

Currently, I'm setting up my station and so far I've got:

- IC-7300 Transceiver

- Cushcraft R-8 Vertical Antenna for 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, 10m, 6m - which are the bands where she tunes well

- LNR Precision EF-QUAD Antenna for 40m - pointed South for US, Central and South America. (K, N, PY, CE, LU, CO do come in!)


- N1MM Logger

- FLDIGI - operating on RTTY, PSK31 and FELD HELL

- JT65 SW - most succesful digital mode so far.


Still working on getting things going... the R-8 is well tuned on 20m and up. I have to gather enough courage to start tuning the lower frequency bands on it. I have a Rig Expert AA-54 to help, so I know it ain't a big deal.

I'm getting used to JT65. It seems an easy mode, I average 10 QSO's per hour solid. My logbook shows the results, and if I can operate an hour a day it will be awesome.

One more I want to try is FELD HELL. I just got my FELD HELL CLUB membership # 5623 - I will be active on the next Hell Sprint, skipping the October Spooky Sprint, because 20m won't be allowed, and that's scary to me as well!
