Thanks for visiting,  I am starting to hide in my shack a lot more since the camper was put into storage for the winter and my logs are showing it.

At home I am using a Yaesu FT 450 with a LDG AT 600 Pro Autotuner feeding a random wire over a tree banch.  I also have a Winkeyer and a Signalink digital modes unit which will come into play once I get all the computer stuff configured.  The SignalLink seems to be functioning correctly according to my FT8Log but the Winkeyer is still no playing nicely

In the camper I am using the same Yaesu 450  but with a SGC SG 237 Smart Tuner along with a S9 43 foot vertical antenna.  The camper has been winterised and now safely hibernating in Storage till we head out again in the spring time.  At this time I plan to operate SSB, CW and PSK 31 from the camper.  All three modes allow me to ragchew with my friends back home while on the road this coming summer (2018)  Our travels this summer will be within Ontario for the most part so no rare or exotic locations expected in our travels

My portable station is still my Yaesu FT 817 along with a LDG QRP Auto tuner with either a Buddipole vertical or a Parr end fedz qrp 10- 20 and 40m antenna which seems to work great everywhere between 10m and 40m using the LDG Tuner.  I am able to operate Portable PSK 31 using my NUE PSK Modem

I am currently attempting to get my FT 450 to talk to my computer using HRD and that is a work in progress.

Look for me on the air usually mid week (Wed, Thurs and Fridays) once (if) I get everything configured.

Now active using FT8

The Canadian Goverment calls me "Robert" and my friends call me "Bob"

I really prefer LoTW and EQSL . If you reply via EQSL please also confirm by LoTW if you can... as I am working on several ARRL Awards right now and we know that LoTW (ARRL) does not accept EQSLs yet.

My station logs are uploaded to LoTW daily, EQSL and HRDLOG.net as the contacts are entered in my log and are uploaded when I remember to QRZ.com or every Monday am (whatever comes first)
