Hi from Ontario

Post by Randall » 14 Jun 2012, 01:44

I live about 50km north east of Toronto. I was into cb radio in the 70s and early 80s but since then have not been using it at all. Recently i bought a new SSB radio and have set up a mobile and moderate base. Up until this new radio I had never used sideband and once I did got hooked pretty quickly.
I have talked to Greenland, Jamaica, and far into the United States so far.

I am looking forward to making some "eastern" contacts.

I loved Ontario! So much so I almost moved there, but alas the ex-pat Canadian Girl I loved found someone else.....oh but for the folly of youth!

I'd still move there tomorrow if I could! Lovely part of the world with great people, I spent New Year 2004 there and man, YOU GUYS KNOW HOW TO PARTY!

Would love to catch you on the air! Hope to speak soon and welcome to TM1!
