Biography

Born in Kyiv, Ukraine (ex USSR).  Introduced to the hobby by my father as SWL UB5-065177 in early 1970s. Since 1993 live in Ontario, Canada. In May 2020 got my basic (with honors) ticket, upgraded to the advanced license in April 2021. Went on air as VA3OKG on July 4, 2020. SKCC #23935.

I am interested in DX-ing, DIY antenna projects, and some contesting.  The air time is split between CW and SSB.  As to digital modes - find FT8 exciting for 6 m, but not for HF communication.  My job as software developer, family life and other responsibilities leave little time for hobbies.  I change bands frequently, and prefer quick QSOs over rag-chewing.  It may change, however.

QSL info.  The logs are uploaded to LOTW, EQSL, CLUBLOG and QRZ.  If your QRZ page indicates this is ok, I send my paper QSLs via bureau or direct when I need yours.  

Not retired (yet). Among other hobbies - fishing, cooking, serious reading and good wine.  Whenever possible, my wife and I enjoy travel, both domestic and international.

Thank you for visiting my page, and hope to meet you on the air!

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

ICOM 7300 
LDG IT-100 auto-tuner
Bencher BY-1 paddle, Junker DBGM straight key

Antennas. 

Built several homebrew wire dipoles, verticals, and loops supported by backyard vegetation.  The size of the property is limited, and tree branches do not allow raising feed point more than 30 feet (10m) above the ground.  However, they enjoy a nice view of Lake Simcoe some 100 feet below.

Current setup:

160m inverted L
80-6m W5GI ("mystery") dipole 
15m vertical loop
