Ham Member Lookups: 4881


After a lifetime of professional work in electronics and wired and wireless data communications research and development, it took until my retirement to find the time to join the radio amateurs as a hobby. I received the Canadian certification Basic with Honors in September 2015, and in January 2016 upgraded to the Advanced certification. Within a week I set up a basic ham shack in a spare room at home, and was on the air within days, so far mostly using digital modes (RTTY, PSK, JT65 and JT9) on the 10 through 80m bands. Occasionally I am experimenting on the 6m and 160m bands as well.

Visit my home page (http://www.bjkurz.com) and my Amateur Radio home page (http://www.bjkurz.com/amateurradio/amateurradio.htm).

I am a member of the Fredericton Amateur Radio Club (http://www.ve9nd.ca) and the European Phase Shift Keying Club (http://www.eupsk.com) (#25648).


Uploaded regularly to QRZ.com, eQSL.cc(AG) and LOTW.

Paper cards direct by mail: if I receive a QSL card by mail, I will return one to the sender (no money needed but self-addressed envelope is appreciated).

If a QSL card is requested online through ClubLog, it is free via bureau but US$2 via mail (see the ClubLog form at the bottom of this page).

If requested, I will e-mail a printable card, filled out by hand and scannned.
