Thank you for visiting my qrz.com webpage smiley

I've been licensed since 2002. I love HF mobile and doing community service events / ARES callouts. It is much more interesting for me to work mobile with 100W than to work at a 'big-gun' station (but the Big Gun stations are fun once in a while :) While holding this callsign I also had VE3LKV from 07/2007 to 09/2012.  In 2014 I earned my US Extra Class callsign of AI7LK.

If you hear me mobile I am in likely in my VW Jetta Turbo Diesel sedan and occasionally my 1988 Ford F350 Turbo Diesel pickup truck. My antennas and radios move from one vehicle to the next quite easily thanks to Anderson Powerpoles and BNC connectors. On HF you may hear me occasionally from home running voice or digital modes.

In my mobiles, I run Yaesu FT857D with Yaesu ATAS-120A at 100W. The ATAS has been modified with a longer whip, and this allows for improved coverage on all bands, however I cannot use it for 6m with a whip this long. I also run Yaesu FT-8900 with Tram dual band. Photos of my mobile installation in the Jetta can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/32626524@N08/sets/72157623142510771/

At home, I run a Yaesu FT-857D with filters and TCXO, and an older Kenwood TM732A dual band 70cm/2m radio. The 857 is connected to a Cushcraft AV5 ground mounted vertical (10-15-20-40-80) and the 732 to a dual band collinear. Both are at about 25'/8m.  Plans are underway for a larger antenna farm.

Information on the 2013 High River Alberta floods and my involvement is located at http://www.fars.ca/ares/how-field-day-became-a-reality-the-story-of-the-high-river-flood-of-2013/

From time to time you'll see me simulcasting on the internet at http://tinyurl.com/ve3lkv.

From time to time you'll hear me on-air as AI7LK while travelling in the United States.

Thanks to "Uncle Al" VE3AND (sk) for introducing me to Ham Radio in 1969.

Je parle un petit peu Français, mai je parle lentement.

Please adopt the DX CODE OF CONDUCT

(from www.dx-code.org via KF9MG)

  • I will listen, and listen, and then listen some more.
  • I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
  • I will not trust the cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
  • I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling him and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
  • I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call him.
  • I will always send my full call sign.
  • I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
  • I will not transmitwhen the DX station calls other geographic areas than mine.
  • When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
  • I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
  • I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
