Ham Member Lookups: 1475


My name is Jim and I've been a ham since 1990. I was introduced to radio in the army after joining in 1966 and became a Signal Man/Driver/Gunner for 3 RCHA in 1968 after which I served in NATO for the 1 RCHA for 3 years until honourably discharged in 1973 as an Engineer in Chilliwack, B.C. when my tour was up.

Past employment after the army has been Burrard Shipyards and B.C. Sugar now called Rogers Refinery after which I went on to trades training for Bus/Truck Mechanic at B.C.I. T. I then knocked around driving Semi trucks and Buses/Mechanic for a few years along with doing security for the Commissionaires at the Vancouver International Airport and Department of Oceans and Fisheries in the radio room with another ham before becoming a longshoreman on the docks in Vancouver, B.C., Canada back in 1995.

Field Day antennas will consist of the Hi-Q NVIS 6/160 system using the Yaesu 857D when not in the shack. My shack is set up for HF/VHF Voice/Digital and UHF with a Yaesu 857D on the matching ATAS antenna and a IC7000 on a HI-Q 5 inch antenna (vertical). Radios for VHF/UHF are the IC 2820 for D-Star off the VE7RAG repeater. Mobile operations is with the IC7000 but with one change, a HI-Q 6 inch antenna. Microphones are by Heil PC 40 and HM 10 dual cartridge with W2IHY's EQplus and 8Band Equalizer and Noise Gate for audio control.

I do a lot of listening on HF and have made contacts from Australia in the S.W and Japan to the West with Bosnia my furthest so far to the East ... ALL MOBILE ... from my truck antenna. As D-Star is becoming more popular I hope to improve my method of listening to DX and making the odd contact. I'm sure having fun in the hobby.
