VE3XD (Don Cassel's) home page. Thank you for visiting here and I hope
you find what you're looking for. I've created this page
to provide information about my activities in Ham (Amateur) radio.
Although the official name of the activity is Amateur Radio it is
more widely recognized as ham radio. In either case there are
licensing requirements to be involved in the hobby and in my case I
am licensed as an Advance Amateur by Industry Canada and operate
with the callsigns VE3XD or VE3BUC.
These pages outline my activities in ham radio with a special
interest in contesting or radiosport as it is widely known among the
practitioners. In the summer of 2011 we moved to a new home in
Kitchener Ontario and as a result my on air activities have been
severely restricted. I may do some simple operating but most of my
contesting will now be mostly limited to club station operation.
