Hi as you can see my name is Ron, live in a City of78000 citizens, 90 Km north east of Toronto. I have been into Ham Radio since 1980, started with this call VE3LUZ have not intended to change it as I find It a very good CW call easy to pick out of pile ups. Started as Amateur Class and before I did the exams for Advanced Amateur I was Grandfathered to Advanced Amateur when changes were made to the Licensing system. Dropped out of Ham Radio for quite a length of time, 16yrs,lost interest and other hobbies took over,Carp Fishing, Computer gaming etc. Back in 2009 the bug bite me, Idecided to get active again, my station gear still worked, Rig Kenwood TS940,amp KenwoodTL-922,MosleyClassic 33 tri-band antenna etc. Since theUpper Frequencies were lousy, sunspot activity nil, I had an Alpha Delta trapped sloper for the lowbands,160, 80, 40,30 attached to the top of my 50 ft tower and have worked mainly 40 meters Cw with very good results, was amazed at how well the sloper worked. Then when the upper frequencies started to open up I found I had trouble with the beam and had to get it repaired, Mosley Antenna's still carry parts for these antennas so was lucky there.

In the fall of 2010 I decided to up grade my gear even though It was still working I wanted something NEW, opted to try Yaesu gear,have always been a Kenwood guy,purchased the FT-DX3000, Yaesu VL-Quadra Amplifier, MD-200 mike and matching speaker, Also opted to try the SteppIR 3 element antenna, am not dissapointed there, this is a great antenna, had the autotrack board installed in the controler when bought it, so from 20 to 6 meters I have a killowatt station, the antenna follows the radio, and re-tunes when ever you go 50 khz up or down the band, SWR 1.3:1 on most bands, the amp loves the low swr, so no antenna tunning etc etc. I am not much of a contester, but love working DX-peditions. Sorry I do not send qsl cards as it has gotten to expensive, I use Eqsl, Qrz or LOTW, thanks for your understanding.

I am not much of a ragchewer on CW but if you hear me on phone don't hesitate to give me a call, 73 for now.

Ron Ve3luz Thanks for looking at my page and hope to work you on Phone or Cw 73 gd DX


Putting up the SteppIR Beam the easy way,it covers from 20m to 6m.














The guy on the tower is Dave a great Tower Worker, also our club President.


This is my summer hobby, a 32lb 8z common carp. A good summer catch would be 600 or more

I live only 500 ft from the Lake i fish. The carp weigh anywere from 0 up to 50lbs, the biggest

one caught in our lake was 39lb 8oz by a friend of mine.



For all of you hams in countries that don't have snow, then this is what a Canadian Winter can look like

sometimes we have a lot less snow, other winters can look like this. Winter starts around the month of

November, and we don't usually get snow until early December that stays on the ground as the weather

gets colder, this was the Winter of 2013. And this winter is not much different but we are having a lot

colder temperatures, it has been as low as -28C.
