Big Changes for VE3NCQ

Category: Uncategorized — VE3NCQ @ 02:20

The past year has brought some big changes. For one, I am now known as AK4OG, having moved away from Ontario to Virginia. This site will continue under my Canadian callsign, and I will keep doing the Chatham-Kent Amateur Radio website.

In Virginia, I’m the transmitter engineer for a series of PBS transmitters located on remote mountaintops, on VHF and UHF with ERP up to 100 kW. It’s a distributed transmission system, using microwave links and synchronized on-channel transmitters to cover challenging terrain sheilded from the main sites. The scenery is amazing, and I love the job. My radio activities have been somewhat limited here as a result.

Feel free to poke around this site, and discover some of the Amateur Radio resources that are hosted here.
