Some of my operations:



I do much of connection to my good friend, Andy, K2LE's Vermont station,  a fantastic contest station nestled in far southern part of the green mountains of Vermont.   


I do a lot of remote operating these days.  You will probably catch me operating from VY1AAA in the Yukon Territory -- during 2017 I'll be using the special prefix callsigns XO1X, XK150YUKON or CI1AAA, celebrating Canada's 150th Birthday.

Most other times I'll be on from K2LE/1, a fantastic contest station in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

Automated QSLing doesn't like different states for the same callsign.   So, my physical QSL card is the best way to confirm a QSO with a card in the mail.   An SASE is appreciated.   If you had sent me an SASE in the past, and you never received a card, I would appreciate an email to gerry@w1ve.com -- send me the QSO information, and, if I can confirm, I'll send the QSL.
I do not answer bureau cards, as I just can't keep up with the QSL load -- I do a lot of contesting.   Most contacts are uploaded to LOTW.   Again, if you have an issue with a past QSL, please email me.  Thanks!

My Ham Radio story...

I am a native of Nova Scotia, on Canada's eastern coast. However, I currently live in southwestern New Hampshire. My amateur radio experience began back in 1976, when I was first licensed as WA4UUX.   AK4L, my extra call, came quickly, and I held that call till 1996, when I became W1VE. When I went back to Canada for college in 1979, I took the Canadian Amateur Radio tests and first became VE1BXC. Later, I changed that to VE1CER, and finally to VE1RM.

My interest in ham radio led to a job at ARRL HQ, from 1980-83. I worked in the lab and as a QST Assistant Technical Editor. That was back in the days of Doug DeMaw, W1FB, a fine tutor! If you have the 1982 ARRL Handbook, my picture is on the cover, operating my QSK amp and CW keyboard.

Although I've probably done most things in my "career" as a ham, the most consistent activity has been contest operating. I love contests, especially CW DX and SS. I've never had a super station at home, but I've had the privledge of operating from some of the best in the world: VE1DXA(@VE1YX), VE9DH, VE1ASJ, KY1H/K1TTT, K1ZZ, K1IR, K2LE/1, W2SZ/1, and many others. In the mid-80s I was part of DXpeditions to Sable (CY0) and St. Paul (CY9) Islands as CY0SAB and CY9SPI. Though business and pleasure travel, I had the opportunity to operate as VP2M/VE1RM, KH6/W1VE, 6Y6C, 8P1V and TI5/W1VE. We often travel to the Canadian Maritimes on vacation, and you may hear me on as VE1RM, VE9XDX, VY2CDX or VO1WIN, all additional calls I hold.   In the US, I also hold club call WR1ST (aka WRIST), which I use in WPX and a few other operations.

Over the years, I've had the pleasure of participating in many contests which, after a lot of hard work and perseverance, has put our mult-op teams into the Top Ten in Canada or the USA.   Along with these International DX Contests, I love ARRL November Sweepstakes, and the ARRL June/September VHF Contests... Where I've operated from W2SZ/1 on Mt. Greylock, MA for the past 30+ years.
