I'm not currently selling anything. If it ain't listed here, I'm not selling it. Don't get scammed!

I am testing a 10m beacon. This beacon will be on and off until I can get everything sorted out and a permanent antenna installed. Currently, it's running 5W from an HTX-100 to my HexBeam, but I am planning to move it to a Ringo vertical. Keyer is a K1EL K16.

Currently, I have a high noise floor, especially on 40/80. If you're trying to work me and I don't respond, don't be offended. I'd love to have you in the log, but am limited by noise. Apologies!

Originally licensed in 1998 as VE5SMC, upgraded to advanced + code in 2001.

I spend most of my radio time operating CW and digital modes, especially on 30m. SSB is rarely used at VA5LF, mostly just the major contests and a few other times.

Current projects:

Now that I have 2 children, there's not enough time to really get into any projects for the time being. Just glad to get on the air occasionally!

A group of amateurs in the Saskatoon area have gotten a D-STAR repeater up and running locally. It's VA5DR and it's running on 448.125(-). This repeater is linked into the ircDDB network and is running the FreeSTAR software. You can find out more at http://saskatoon-dstar.ca

My current antenna setup:

  • K4KIO 6 band Hex-beam at 30 ft for 20m through 6m.
  • 40m dipole at 25' (aka "The cloud warmer")
  • DX Engineering 43' vertical, with crappy top loading. Planning to use for 630m, but currently using on 80 and 160m.

QSL Information:

QSL via LoTW. I will also upload to eQSL, but do so much less frequently.

Due to time and cost, I am no longer routinely sending paper QSLs. If you really want one, drop me an email with our contact info and your address and I'll send one your way (at least until my current supply runs out).
