My HF station consists of a Yaesu FT-950, an M Squared KT34M2, and a Cushcraft D-40 rotatable 40m dipole on a 15 meter tower. Panadapter function is done with an AFEDRI SDR using HDSDR software.  I also have D-STAR capabilies with the Icom ID-51A and ID-880H (hotspot is a DVMega on a RaspPi).  2m FM with a Yeasu FT-2500M in the shack.

I was first licensed in 1988 with an Amateur class license as VE5VCO. At that time one had to demostrate CW proficiency at 10 WPM. I operated for six months (mostly 40M) on CW to get my 10m phone endorsement, making about 200 contacts from my apartment with a balcony mounted portable antenna. In 1989 I received my Advanced license which required 15WPM CW proficiency. This pretty much gave me all of the privileges available to an Amateur Radio operator in Canada. I also obtained my Digital Radio Operator's certificate in 1989, demonstrating proficiency in basic digital radio networking stuff. I switched to my two letter call sometime in the early 1990's.

DXing and contesting are my main interests. I will operate any mode where there's DX, but I lean toward using CW.  Lately I've been doing some WSPR and JT-65.
