Thanks for stopping by my QRZ !!

My handle is Young. I was born in 1965 S.Korea and am currently residing in Sherwood Park, Alberta Canada with my wife and children. 

My QTH is gridsquare DO33im and the Sherwood park a small town with 68,000 + population, located east of Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta.  I am proud to be a Local Union 424 member of the IBEW as a Master Electrician for 10 years and Electrical/Electronic Engineer for 12 years. 

I got my Basic license in 2005, call sign VE6YWK and then I upgraded to Advanced license in 2016, getting my current VA6YK call sign.  I started on the VHF/UHF (144 - 147 Mhz) band and then move to the upper category such as HF bands.  I mostly work SSB bands(80m, 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m & 10m) and at times work JT65-HF/JT9 & FT8 as well.  I also use my own custom 5-Elements Yagi Antenna, I constructed for VHF/UHF simplex, EchoLink and repeater work for local club. 

The HAM is my hobby number one and I am very happy to have a lot of friends all around the world thanks to this hobby and I enjoy designing & building HF antennas. Other hobbies of mine include fishing, camping and coin/stamp collection.

My principal radio equipment : Kenwood TS 940S, Yaesu FT-101 and FT 857D rig 100 Watts.

DRAKE L-4B Linear Amplifier 1,500 Watts.

Antenna #1 : Homebrew #14 AWG wire dipole 80 ~ 6m up 50ft height in the trees such as a G5RV

Antenna #2 : Homebrew Hexbeam 6-bands 2 elements up 20ft height

Antenna #3 : Homebrew 5 elements 2m Yagi

Antenna #4 : Mobile antenna ATAS - 120A.


Cheers Young & 73's DE VA6YK.
