First Licensed in 1978 as VE7CFL with Basic Amateur Certificate and upgraded to Advanced Amateur in 1985. Received VE7FU as a callsign in 1987. I also hold the callsign VE7ROB
I have worked in the wireless and telecommunications fields since 1983 including the paging industry, railroad communications, world exposition (Expo 86), Airline Flight Operations and retired as a Federal Spectrum Management Officer in December 2015.
Have been away from HF amateur operations for 30 years but recently put up a trapped version of a G5RV and am feeding it with a Yaesu FTDx-9000 contest or ICOM IC-9100. Still very active on the bands above 50 MHz including 220 MHz and VHF/UHF C4FM, D-Star and DMR. I also use the Northwest Digital ThumbDV and the multi-protocol DV4Mini.
Recently acquired the Yaesu HRI-200 Wires-X interface and have been marrying that to my FTM-400 and operating a Wires-X node and room on an intermittent basis. Lots of fun!
I hope to rekindle my interest in CW after I get a chance to relearn the code.
Current station setup. ICOM IC-9100, Yaesu FTDx-9000 C, SP-9000 Speaker, Yaesu FTM-400 UHF/VHF
