For those not familiar with amateur or Ham Radio, VE9DWF is
a amateur radio license "call sign" or ID. So why use this as my opening
logo? Well to answer that question, I also use it as my email address, license
plate number, all online internet chatting name, online gaming, etc, etc,
Being a licensed amateur radio operator here in New Brunswick,
Canada, I decided to purchase a little online web space for myself. Hence the
creation of this web page, to show and share my hobbies of interest: amateur
radio, computers, and the internet.
I am offering to the many other 'hams' out there room on
this server if they are looking for a spot to post articles, freeware software or any
other item relating to amateur radio.
MY QSL CARD

"station post card" which is sent to other amateur stations after having a QSO

two stations as a little souvenir for each operator of the QSO.
They are generally used with long distance "H.F." contacts more so then with
