5 July
I first earned my Amateur Operator's certificate in August, 1979, in Canada. In 1981 I earned my Canadian Advanced certificate and shortly afterwards changed my call sign from VE3LOK to VE3THX. I lived in Toronto from 1979 until 2000, when I moved to New York City, where I presently live with my wife and two cats in Queens, about 5 miles south of LaGuardia airport. I obtained my U.S. license in early 2002.

I am a computer network administrator professionally, I have written a book depicting all the tracks of the New York City Subway system and I'm also a licensed private pilot.

I operate on HF with a Yaesu FT-1000 MP Mark V running 200W and occasionally an Ameritron AL-811 at 600W into a 4-band Alpha Delta dipole up 45 feet above ground level for 10-40 Meters. I also run a a full-sized dipole for 80 Meters, also at 45 feet up. You'll find me adding to my DXCC totals on 10, 15, 17, 20, 40 and 80 and working on DXCC awards for 12 and 30 metres.

I have a Kenwood TM732A 2m/70cm rig in the shack at home, an ICOM 208H mobile, and a couple of old Motorola HTs. Hope to work you soon!

Please QSL either direct, via the bureau or Logbook Of The World. All my logs are updated to LoTW every few days. I do NOT participate in eQSL.
