Biography

I was first licensed as WB3GVS in April 1977 (14 years old) when I ran a Tempo One transceiver into an Inverted Vee antenna fed by RG8-U foam coaxial cable. I was mentored by my Elmer, Bill Mervine, WA3TAG. The Tempo One was also good as auxiliary heating for my Hockessin, DE bedroom.

After upgrading to a US General Class Amateur license, Ichanged my callsign to N3AIS. I then upgraded to Advanced class and then sold the Tempo One during university and got an Icom IC2-AT 2 meter handheld and still have it today. I have a Bao-Feng UV-5R+ in 2013 for local VHF and UHF use.

I upgraded to US Extra Class in 1994 and purchased a Kenwood TS-450S/AT, which runs like the day I bought it.

I moved to Canada in July 2007, after I got married to my beautiful XYL. I'm an IBM employee and work with customers as a Technical Sales Specialist on PureSystems.

I got my Basic Plus (12 WPM code) Canadian license in November 2012 and live in Toronto as VE3EEI. I got my ZS6BKW-modified G5RV up in the trees next to my house around 35 feet and I now run my TS-450S/AT 80 meters through 10 meters, mostly CW. I just received a fibreglass mast to use as a more dedicated center support for the G5RV. I also now own a Cushcraft R7 all-band vertical as well as a Diamond X-200A vertical. An Elecraft KX3 is on my wish list for new radios.

I am an active member of the Central Toronto Amateur Radio Club (CENTOR) as well as Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) and the University of Toronto Amateur Radio Society (VA3UOT)
