Ham Member Lookups: 1819


Thank you for visiting my qrz.com webpage :)  My personal webpage has more about me.

I licensed in 2002 but have been interested in Ham Radio since 1967. I love HF mobile and doing community service events / ARES callouts. It is much more interesting for me to work mobile with 100W than to work at a 'big-gun' station (but the Big Gun stations are fun once in a while :) While holding this callsign I also had VE3LKV from 07/2007 to 09/2012.  In 2014 I earned my US Extra Class callsign: AI7LK.

If you hear me mobile I am in my 2006 VW Jetta Turbo Diesel sedan or my 2005 Ford F350 Turbo Diesel pickup truck.  My antennas and radios move from one vehicle (or the RV) to the next quite easily thanks to Anderson Powerpoles and BNC connectors.  On HF you may hear me occasionally from home running voice or digital modes.  Where's Vince at now?  Find me on APRS.

In my mobiles, I run Yaesu FT-857D with Yaesu ATAS-120A at 100W. The ATAS has been modified with a longer whip, and this allows for improved coverage on all bands, however I cannot use it for 6m with a whip this long.  I also run Yaesu FT-8800/8900 with Comet C4SR dual band.  Photos of my mobile installation in the Jetta can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/32626524@N08/sets/72157623142510771/   APRS tracker is a Kenwood TK-705 and a Byonics TinyTrak4.  In my Fifth wheel RV, I run Yaesu FT-857D at 100W along with a Yaesu FT-8800/8900.  I use a military-style 30' push-up mast to support my antennas while in the field.  The RV is equipped with 640W of Solar panels, 440Ah of AGM battery and a 2500W inverter.  I am fortunate to own two sets of FT-857D radios along with one each FT-8800 and FT-8900.  These are mounted on aluminum platforms in pairs giving me 3 VFOs covering all bands.  One is mounted in the vehicle I'm driving at the time and the other is on standby for either an ARES callout or for setting up in my RV.

In my home, I run a Kenwood TS-120s at 100W and a Kenwood TM732A dual band 70cm/2m radio. The TS-120s is connected to a Cushcraft AV5 ground mounted vertical (10-15-20-40-80) and a 20-40-80m Fan Dipole, and the 732 to a dual band collinear. Both are at about 30'/10m.  Plans are perpetually underway for a larger antenna farm.

In my home I house one of the two testing labs for the Foothills Amateur Radio Society where I am learning about repeaters, cavities and controllers.  Thanks to my elmers VE6TD and VE6LG who support me in my pursuit of this interest.  I am the trustee of the VE6VPD repeater located in Aldersyde AB 145.470-, home of IRLP node 1483.

Information on the 2013 High River Alberta floods and my leadership in the Ham Radio response is located at http://vincedeon.com/?page_id=128​ 

From time to time you'll see me simulcasting on the internet at http://tinyurl.com/ve3lkv.  From time to time you'll hear me on-air as AI7LK while travelling in the United States.

Thanks to "Uncle Al" VE3AND (sk) for introducing me to Ham Radio in 1969.  Je parle un petit peu Français, mai je parle lentement.

My first couple of CW keys.  I wrote my test with the one on the left...
