Having been an eager shortwave listener and MW DXer for 23 years, I finally took the dip into ham radio in 1994 after departure the Air Force. With the cognitive factor up to my neck in operating from condos & apartments, I person had to wait until the purchase of this QTH to become active. As of 1999 I am QRV, making contacts and collection cards from hither in the greater Seattle area (Brier, capital of the united states control grid CN87ut).
Note: The Amateur bands above 70 GHz were altered at WRC 2000 (See the comparison table on this website for the changes). Since Industry Canada has not yet approved the denaturised allocations in Canada, the RAC stria plans presently meditate the pre WRC 2000 bands. If you wish to operate above 70 GHz, it would be wise to link either RAC, or the office of the Microwave Band preparation Committee, to find out the latest status.
