Chapter 73

I was first licensed in 1958 as VE3CLR then in 1959 I was GM3NQB till I returned to Canada in 1965 when I got the call VO2AI. In 1966 I moved back to Ontario and got my present call. I have Life membership in Radio Amateurs of Canada, ARRL, AMSAT and QCWA. I have never run more than 100 watts and my present station uses an IC-756 PRO III and an IC-910H. Antennas are an A-4 beam and a trap dipole for HF. An 11 element 2m beam at 57 feet and crossed yagis for 2m and 70cm satellite operation. I have DXCC 353/353 and need only Yemen, Lakshadweep, Andamans, N.Korea and Scarborough Reef. I got Honour Roll in 2003 and have WAS and WAZ. I also have WAS on the low earth orbit satellites. I like to work DX and special prefixes. Other hobbies are stamp collecting and astronomy. QSL via the bureau or direct. No E-QSL please.
