VE1PZ is a good friend of mine based out of Pictou, NS. ( I say based as at
times he's had different houses and cottages in the region) He's never
operated remote that I know of.
Doug is a stand up guy and the word cheating is not in his vocabulary.
I don't know his current stn setup, but suffice to say he knows Topband and
likely is running a shunt fed tower or tall inverted L within a snowballs
throw of the Northumberland straight.
He's been on TopBand longer than I have (I got on around 1991 I think)...
He (and I) hold the CQ160 M/S record (from his stn, with his call) and we,
along with K7BV did CY9AA in 1997..where we made many Topband
contacts..actually Doug made most of the Q;'s on Topband.
He's also an accomplished 6m op.
If you don't know the call, I respectfully submit you just have not been
May I suggest before accusing this fella of some wrongdoing, you at least
have SOME facts in hand?
I'm sorry he (apparently) beat you in the pileups, but tough noogies for
