Thank you for looking me up on QRZ!

I was first licensed in 1990 and hold a Canadian Advanced Class license, with morse code endorsement. I also hold the call VA3ZG. 

I started out with a single channel Radio Shack walkie talkie at about age 6 or 7. I progressed up through the ranks of CB radio and "freebanding" for about 10 years. I began monitoring the local 2m repeater and decided I wanted to get my license. In the summer of 1990, I saw an advertisement our local club was holding amateur radio classes. I passed the theory with 10 WPM CW endorsement. IT was a dream come true!

My first HF radio was a Yaesu FT-101E, followed by a Kenwood TS-830S. I thought I was in heaven! Over the years I have had quite an assortment of radios in the shack, as I like to trade and try out new equipment.

Currently I use an Icom 756PROIII, which I think is one of the best radios ever made.  I enjoy working contests, with particular emphasis on RTTY, and have recently got into FT8, a nice quick mode, but I still prefer a good QSO on SSB. 

My DXCC total now sits at 242, and with the beam only at 30' or so, each new one is a challenge!

Hopefully when I retire I'll find myself on the receiving end of a pileup at some exotic location!!!

I hope to work you on the bands.

** Please note, I no longer send out QSL cards. I use LOTW and QRZ.com for confirming contacts.
