Hello! Tim here!

 

   I am new to HAM radio.  I've been interested and heavily involved in electronics, radio, computers and technology in general for most of my life.  I'm a Red Hat Certified Engineer (expertise in Clustering) with a penchant for all things Linux. I am also Red Cross CPR Level C certified.

 Licensed as Basic w/Honours in December of 2014, licensed as Advanced in April of 2015.  Currently a member of CARA (Calgary Amateur Radio Association), RAC (Radio Amateurs of Canada), QRP Amateur Radio Club International (#16100) and the Feld Hell Club (FH #5187). 

I prefer LotW, but I also participate in eQSL and will QSL via the Bureau or Direct - no need to send postage - send me a card and I will send you one back!  I try to upload QSLs to LotW at least once a week, more frequently if I'm logging a lot of contacts.  I try to get paper QSLs out at least once a month.

 


If you've heard me on 80/40/20/15/10 metre, you've heard me on my TenTec Argonaut II (QRP @ 5 watts) through my Hustler 5-BTV.  

If you've heard me on 60 metre, you've likely decoded the Olivia-4-250 beacon I transmitted on the Yaesu FT-100D that VE6RFM sent me (Thanks Al!) through my G5RV at 30-ish feet. VE6RFM, VE6SAR, VA6DBC, VE6JY and myself are working on gathering some reliability statistics on 60 metre propagation at this website: http://auroralpower.ca (Check it out, it's really cool!)


 

Received my ARRL Mixed and Digital WAS awards last month. They're going to look really nice in the shack (once I finish drywalling the basement!)

 

Got this last year, commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Apollo/Soyuz space program:

The SSTV frame that got me the award:

 

Super cool!

 

Some eQSLs from operating QRP:

 

Paper QSLs (I really like these!):

 

This contact with VK6DW had me literally jumping around the shack like a madman, 15455 km at 5 watts:

 

The first QSL card I ever received, from VE3NLS:

 

Indiana, Japan, both QRP at 5 watts through my TenTec Argonaut II.

 

Didn't believe this was a legit call sign until I looked it up. Then I was so stoked to make contact!

 

I think I'd like to drive to California one day.  For now, I will make contacts via HAM radio!

 

Special event stations! Cool!

 

The yellow of this card is a great colour, the photo doesn't do it justice!

 

More to come, I'm sure. :)

 

Have a great day and 73 de VA6TDG!
