Hello

Live north of London, Ontario Canada in the small village of Ilderton.

Interested in SWL and amateur radio as a teenager (the 70's), but could never learn the code part to obtain my ticket.

Jumping forward I obtained my license in 1999, but never used it (too many other things going on at the time).

Now I have some spare time and once again have a great interest in the hobby.

I had equipment but no antenna, a member of the club has developed a great antenna, a video is here

I have constructed the antenna and use it on a tripod, move it out to the driveway when needed.

This year (2016), an Icom 7300 was added to the shack.. a wonderful rig, which I have had a lot of fun with.

I have also installed a Flagpole vertical antenna. Using an Icom AH-4 tuner on the antenna.

Mainly working 20M PSK31 as my first mode.

Recently started using JT65.. a bit of a learning curve there... Sorry to all those hams that I pressed the wrong button at the wrong time in the QSO or made a mistake along the way... I call this mode the 47 seconds sit and wait, 5 seconds of waiting for decode and 8 seconds of panic to press the right button or click the mouse on the right call format!

 

Now using FT8 almost every evening,  amazing mode that has produced many contacts as illustrated below.

 

In the summer, I sometimes go out to the "farm".  I will operate as portable and be mainly on 20M

 

 

I am on the executive of the London Amateur Radio Club... if you are in the area feel to drop into our club station.
