Welcome to this site
I am a ham radio operator and a regular vlogger on the popular website YouTube. I have created this site in a effort to provide some information about what ham radio is and how it is used in communities around the world. I've also created this site to promote information about my YouTube channel, INET. I create videos for INET relating to technology and major news events. To date I've helped over 100 people with tech-related inquiries and many have become regular viewers.
In addition to my involvement in the Victoria ham radio community and YouTube activities I am an avid FTAer. I currently have a 90cm motorized dish as well as several fixed dishes which I use to watch unencrypted TV channels and feeds from around the world. I am constantly trying to promote information about the real hobby of FTA and how it is a great way to see what is happening in our world from a variety of perspectives. I hope you find this site to be informative and useful and I encourage you to contact me via email or though my YouTube account.
A bit about me
I am a twenty year old student who resides in Victoria, British Columbia. I am a licensed ham radio operator with the callsigns VE7ALB and most recently Va7OL.I am the current president of Victoria's most popular amateur radio club, WARA or the West coast Amateur Radio Association. I have always been involved in quite a wide variety of different activities so it made sense to design and host this website to try and bring some of these activities together. I am always supportive of people wanting to learn about FTA or ham radio and enjoy helping people, and have set up an email account specifically for this purpose. Feel free to browse this website and check out some of the links that I've provided to some of the most helpful sites that I've found online.
