Hello Fellow Hams

 I got my amateur radio license in June 2012. I am a member of York Region Amateur Radio Club I was elected to the board of directors with YRARC in June of 2013. I monitor both VE3YRA  and VE3YRC club repeaters. I look forward to chatting with all of you eventually. :)


Well I finally got on Hf (hi hi). got some hard line from Mark SDF. Its Laying on the roof and hanging in the 2 trees front and back. As soon as the snow clears from the roof , I will raise the bazooka up about 3 feet

Hi All The snow is all gone and the bazooka is lifted about three feet off the roof. Wow what a difference. The bazooka is pointing east to west but I can still pick up some Europe. I have also added a ALS 500 linear 

Hello Again My not so friendly neighbour called the bylaw department on me about rf in their phones, baby monitor and television. I told the bylaw officer that he had no jurisdiction with my future tower or my operating rights with my Amatuer Radio License, and gave them info from Industry Canada. They have since returned to let me know that they will let me put up an antenna support stucture, but at a lesser hight than I want. Then the same day the local police arrived at my house because the neighbour was  told by the bylaw department they had no power with Indusrty Canada I just laughed, so did the police officer. Story To Continue... 

 Well I got an email from Industry Canada that tells me I am good to go with my tower installation and not to worry about the town of Bradford    :lol:

   Update Oct 27 2013 

I finally got my 47 foot tower and MA5B Cushcraft mini beam up today. I got help from Mark MKJ, Marc SDF, Anthony HIS, Randy GNX and two neighbours George and Rob and of course me. It went up very smoothly, after some discussion on how we should raise it, we decided to lift up 3/12 sections (30 feet of mast and rotor in place) onto one section at ground level. Mark MKJ was the tower guy, with a little bit of twisting and pulling the beam finally made it to its new home. I still have a few hours now tying up the loose ends and running coax to the shack.

                                           Thank You Guys For All Your Help
