About Us

Welcome to VA3DBJ.  Located in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada

Back in 1994, I ran the SpaceLodge BBS, during the good old Fido BBS days. Then in 2000, I was on the internet running SpaceLodge/ScannerDesk.com and now VA3DBJ.ca. I was pretty heavy into space communications and the shuttle flights, back then and now, you can add amateur radio.

VA3DBJ Focus

Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communications together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It’s fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need. Amateur Radio operators come from all walks of life — doctors, students, kids, politicians, truck drivers, movie stars and even your average neighbor next door. People of all ages, sexes, income levels and nationalities. Whether through Morse Code on an old brass telegraph key, voice communication on a hand-held radio or computerized messages transmitted via satellite, all hams use radio to reach out to the world.
