New Call Sign  VE3EB  (Also known as my first call sign, VE3OIC but I answer to both)

Thank you for taking the time to visit my QRZ page.

My name is Matthew (Eric) Brown and I reside in Newmarket, Ontario with my family.


Newmarket is located approximately 35 kilometers directly to the north of the City of Toronto border or just over 55 kilometers from Toronto City Hall. The overall area surrounding Toronto is referred to as the Greater Toronto Area or GTA

I was licensed for Amateur Radio in 2004 as VE3OIC and received my advanced ticket in 2005. So you are not confused I own three Canadian Call Signs,VE3OIC, VA3OIC and as of May 2, 2014 I use the preferred call  VE3EB my new two letter vanity call sign!

My interests include HF phone, digital modes but specifically PSK on 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30 and 40 meters and  D-Star radio, DV Dongles and D-RATS, APRS and more recently APRX (Linux version) technology.

My latest D-Star purchase is an ICOM ID5100A mobile radio and so far it has been one of the best
mobile radio that I have owned or operated!

Me and my Tape Measure Yagi!
