Baner

Welcome to the VA7RY Home Page

I was first licensed as SP6COZ in 1978, in 1992 I received my advanced license and call VE4COZ.
After living in Winnipeg for fourteen years, I felt like I'm ready for a change, so we've moved to Kelowna BC.
In 2003 I received my present call VA7RY  I kept my VE4 call, so it is possible to work me as VE4COZ
My passions in amateur radio are DX'ing and RTTY contesting, I also enjoy other digital modes.
73, Irek VA7RY
