I’m fairly new to amateur radio, but I currently have my Canadian Amateur Radio Basic Qualification (with Honours) and am active on my callsign VE7TZB from my home and outdoors.

My Rigs #
In my truck I run a Kenwood TM-V71A 50W mobile transceiver connected to a Comet CA-2X4SR dual band 40” antenna attached to my roof rack.
At home I run another Kenwood TM-V71A 50W mobile transceiver as a base station powered by a Pyramid PSV3000 which will run for some time in the event of grid power loss by a UPS (I eventually want to run this station off a large LiFePO4 battery but that costs $$$). The station is connected to 25ft of LMR-400 which goes to a Diamond X50A dual band 5.6ft antenna in my attic.
I also have a few spare Baofeng handheld transceivers with 14” Nagoya whip antennas that I bring with me on outings.
