Living the bachelor apartment life in Cornwall, ON without any external antenna capability permitted due to City of Cornwall Lease Agreement so I'm on-the-air with my 1992 Yaesu FT-470 2m/70cm HandiTransceiver and my Comet BNC-24 HT antenna on my night table next to my bed in my 1st floor south facing apartment bedroom window powered by my 1988 Canadian-made 15Amp switching-type power supply with 7Amp Power Port as I do not possess a vehicle at this time.
I have my 2016 Yaesu FT2DR 2m/70cm FM/C4FM YSF (Yaesu System Fusion) with APRS/GPS HandiTransceiver with my 3-band (6m/2m/70cm) 2010 Maldol EX-510B antenna magnetically mounted by my 2015 OPEK Tech AM-1045B NMO powered by my SSD-13 Cigarette Lighter Adapter plugged in to my 2006 Alinco DM-330MVT 10Amp Power Port and my 2020 Yaesu FTM7250D 2m/70cm FM/C4FM YSF (Yaesu System Fusion) Mobile Transceiver for C4FM Digital. I have a Comet SS-680SBNMO 27 inch 2m/70cm 2.15dBi/4.15dBi handling 80 watt Mobile Antenna, Diamond Antenna SPM/NMO 4" diameter Magnet Mount for < 45" tall antennae with 13 foot RG-58A/U Coax and PL-259 connector at my living room window powered by my 2006 Alinco DM-330MVT 30Amp(Constant)/32Amp(Surge) switching-type supply.
My APRS Callsign is VE3XID-7 on my FT2DR which can be followed on APRS.FI (en.aprs.fi/info/a/VE3XID-7) or an APRS program installed on your Microsoft Windows computer, Linux computer or Android smartphone. I also have my 2018 Samsung Galaxy S9 Android phone and installed the APRSDroid app with Callsign VE3XID-5.
I am now using EchoLink Node 219333 with Callsign VE3XID so I can be found splitting my time between *420* Conference Node 66420, *DX-LINK* Conference Node 356937 and *DODROPIN* Conference Node 355800.
