Biography

Hi!

Thank you for looking up my call!  

My friends call me Rob and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  I've been passionate about radios for the last 40+ years, mainly shortwave (listening and DX), scanning, and all sorts of electronic mischief!  However I have only been licensed since 2019.  Fabulous hobby, I regret not getting involved in it sooner.

Current main equipment: Icom IC-7300, ZS6BKW at about 40 feet, 40M loop for 12M, 15M, 30M, and 60M (digital). 

Some older equipment and antennas that I might be using include an Icom IC-745, homemade hexbeam antenna (6M-20M), 40M loop (typically use 10M-20M), Alpha Delta Sloper (a SWL antenna that I sometimes use on 40M).

Also on Peanut- it's a great place for a long QSO without relying on the ionosphere.  Feel free to say 'Hello' on the English or CQCanada rooms.  Registered on Echolink as well.

Other non-radio interests that we might chat about include travelling, bicycling (including cycle-touring), outdoor goldfish ponds, engineering, environmental issues, winemaking, most things science, exotic cars I can never afford, the incredible city of Toronto, marine life (SCUBA certified, open-water +deep endorsement; but actually prefer snorkeling), (travel) photography, HP-41 (if you don't know it, don't bother looking it up- really...), alternative lifestyles, smartphones, Raspberry Pi, and discussing/learning about quirky and unusual things in your country!

73!
