This is the front of our new card, redesigned in 2011.

This the back of our new card. Send for yours today. We will answer all QSLs that we have worked.


Send for a QSL card to get one of the above, either direct, via the bureau or by eQSL. We do not use LOTW. We sometimes run special event stations for different events, using the call sign VE3DC but mostly look for us in Contests and we will QSL anyone in our log. You can check for your call in our on line log book at our website.

VE3DC is the call of the Hamilton Amateur Radio Club, established in Hamilton, Ontario CANADA in 1932.

The Contest Site for the Hamilton Amateur Radio Club Contest Group is on farmland but our antenna farm is actually quite modest.

At present we have 2 Triband antennas for 10-15-20 meters. One is a 4 element on a Delhi tower about 50 feet up and the other is a TA-33 Senior on a light duty tower up about 34 feet.

Our original antenna is a full size 160 meter delta loop, on it's back up about 50 feet on 3 TV towers that are 200 feet apart. Some say it is a sky burner (not for DX ) but we have worked the world on this antenna. One of our group comes from Italy. Most contests, he takes time to call home on 10 meters with this antenna and his contacts in Italy always tell him to move out there that they can hear him so much better. Some say it blows smoke, but I have never seen any hi hi.

Other antennas are a 160 meter Windom, 40 meter dipole and an 80 meter Bazooka. We have an R5 Vertical ground mounted and a 4 band 10-15-20 and 40 meter vertical, fed with over 1000 feet of 75 ohm hardline. We also have a Magnetic loop for the 160 meter band so that we can hear the weak ones. We are thinking of designing even more exotic beverage antennas. We need to do this as we are within a mile of an AM radio station that makes our antenna analyzer useless for low band and creates noise for us that we have to filter out. So if you hear us say we have a high noise level in one of the contests, please bear with us, we will do our best to work everyone.

VE3DC can be heard on the air for many contests. We are actually South of Hamilton in part of the Cayuga Farmland, Ontario district, in Haldimond County, that is why we sign HAL in the Ontario QSO Party instead of HAM for Hamilton. Look for us on the bands.
