Welcome to the station Web Site

During normal operation, VA3LKI is primarily used for HF 'digital' modes - i.e. FT 4/8, PSK, RTTY, CW, etc.

VA3LKI is capable of operating as an independent AIRMAIL powered System providing communications services to Maritime stations, RV travelers, fixed, mobile, and portable Ham Radio stations. The station DOES NOT require internet for its messaging services, however it does utilize internet resources as available.

VA3UY is primarily operated as V/UHF Fixed and Mobile. DMR is now a part of the station.

VE3LKI is generally operated as normal HF SSB station.

On receipt of an official request from a recognized municipal, county, provincial or national authority, the station will assist with EMComm operations. Frequencies for these services are NOT public.
