   Greetings from Saskatchewan. First licenced in the spring of 1978 as VE5ABV. Spent two years on cw ( at the time we needed ten words a min.for the amature and fifteen for the advanced amature) then upgraded to advanced amature in 1980. In those years we had to operate as a amature for a year (mostly cw) before being able to write the advanced amature exam, which than gave us phone privileges. Had to go into the d.o.c. office in Regina to write the exam, no ve's in those days, A couple of years later I applied for and was issued the two letter calI I have now with my initials, was fortunate to get it. Enjoy contesting and rag chewing (although I must say i'm not really a big contester). Use n3fjp logging software and find it very good. CW favorite mode. Been trying to get the old brain and fingers working in sync for contest logging with the computer, but it's a struggle.  Finally got up a beam antenna for 20 15 and 10, ( hy-gain th-3jrs) haven't had a directional antenna up since the last quad went down in a ice storm a few years ago. Only got it up 35 feet or so, hope to get it on a better tower in the future. Just run low power, never did own a amp.  Have a home brew g5rv for 40 and 80. Born in 1938, so been around a while. Been a Saskatchewan grain and cattle farmer all my life. Still fly my old c150 on nice days. Our three boys are of course now away from home and have families of their own, so just my wife and I and our border collie Tao holding down the fort. Grand kids keep us old crocks busy now to.  Ham radio has been a great hobby, made lots of fine friends over the years. Sad to say some are now silent keys.  Qsl ok, but I do appreciate return postage, it can get costly with a lot of cards, 73s Gray.
