I have been running a remote base since 2005.  Running a remote that you can't get to for 6 months/year makes it very interesting to ensure that you keep things running.

That is located in the new Ontario RAC Section called ONE, or Ontario East.  

  • Flex 6300 w/ Maestro via Remote and now even via the iPad
  • Elecraft KPA500
  • PSRotatorAZ for controlling all the antennas/Steppir
  • 80M Dipole (75M actually)
  • 40M V
  • 40M 2 Element End Fire array (thanks W1ZY for the pointers)
  • 160M Vertical with elevated radials
  • 80M Vertical with elevated radials (CW band)
  • HF6V (40-10M)
  • 3 el Steppir at 50ft (20-6M)

If you work me on 6M, be very careful which grid number I give you.  It may not be my default grid as I can operate from 2 grids at the same time if required.

This was years ago and I was one of the first to use a Drone to get a drop line in place on a tree.  It was feature in QST many years ago.

DX Cluster

telnet://va3mw.dxcluster.org:41112 and log in with our callsign.

I also run the va3mw.dxcluster.org on port 41112. If you want a cluster that only announces spots that are from heard in Zone 2, 4 and 5, then you want to use my cluster.

Want to run a remote base?

Take away just about all the buttons you have on your desk and replace it with a computer screen. Everything you are used to adjusting now requires a mouse.

It is that reason I chose to us a TS480 connected to a RemoteRig that essentially allows me to keep the control head at my desk and the RF parts at the remote base.

This is the screen shot of my remote base during JARTs in 2012. All the information you need in one place.

p.s.  I suck at sending back QSL cards.  While I do appreciate all the cards I do receive, it is not a requirement that you send me one and I will not be offended if you don't.  I do update LOTW and eQSL daily, so I ask that you make those methods your preference for QSO confirmation.
