I put all dx contacts on dxscape.com. I would appreciate the same in return. TU

My XYL and I have been married for 45 years and have two grown children, a son 40 and a daughter 36. We have lived in the same location here in Coquitlam for 36 years.

I was born in 1941 and got my advanced licence in 1980. Back then we had to do morse code for the exam. After that I didn't do much CW but after I retired I got back into it and love it. 

My rig is an icom 7200 and the antenna is a new Steppir three element. I also have an Ameritron AL-811H amp and a Drake L-7 for cw.

Vancouver is a coastal city and major seaport located in the Lower Mainland of southwestern British Columbia, Canada. The population of greater Vancouver is 2.4 million people. Vancouver is ethically diverse, with 52% of city residents and 43% of residents of Metro Vancouver having a first language other than English.

Because we live right on the coast, my family and I have done a lot of boating and visited the San Juan and Gulf Islands over the years.We have mild winters, but lots of rain, hence the name "Wet Coast" ;-).

Prior to the 1980's, the economy of Vancouver had traditionally relied on British Columbia's resource sectors: forestry, mining, fishing and agriculture. It has diversified over the past 30 years, however, and today it's second largest industry is tourism, and it has become the third-largest film production centre in North America earning it the nickname "Hollywood North".

Vancouver has the fourth highest quality of living in the world, after Zurich, Vienna and Geneva according to a report by Mercer Human Resource Consulting. In 2007, Vancouver was ranked Canada's second most expensive city to live and the 56th most expensive among 143 major cities in the world making it almost inpossible for our children to live in the same area code as their parents, hi. At this time, June, 2016 - a house in the surburbs costs about 1.2 million. Nothing fancy, just your ordinary box with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a rec room downstairs. The cost of a house here has gone  up 40% since last year at this time.

The 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Paralympics were held in Vancouver and nearby Whisltler, a mountain town 125 km north of the city.
