Biography

Hi Jim here VE3RTV.
Thanks for stopping by. I've been a ham now for a number of years and for the time I have been on the air I met lot's of great folks.
I started off when I first got my ticket I had an handheld Icom 02AT.

Then after a year later I bought a used Kenwood TS-530s and used it for a number of years then I sold it and bought a Yaesu FT-757. Then it wasn't too long I bought Yaesu FT 840 back 2001 and set them side by side. I sure got good use out the Yaesu FT 757 and it was showing it's age time. So I sold it and bought another FT 840.
And then this year 2018 I bought a new Yaesu FT DX-1200. It's a nice rig and I haven't got 1/4 way thru the manual. One of my 840's was acting up so the 1200 replaced it. I got rid of the other Yaesu 840 that I bought back in 2001 it gave up too. And I still use my G5RV and bought way back in 1992. I had replaced the wires three over the years. So it's still up and running to this day. Not bad for a little antenna that only cost me $89.00 it owes me nothing.

Now we live in little city called Trenton in Ontario.
Hope to hear you on the bands down the log.

Take care,

73 de,
Jim VE3RTV & Barb VA3BJX.
