About Me

Hello readers!

My name is Dennis d’Entremont. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I have been an amateur radio operator since 1997. I passed my basic certification when I was 15 years old. After being fairly active for a couple of years, I went to college and dropped out of the hobby for a few years. I attempted to get back in off and on but not having a whole lot of money to spend on proper gear I didn’t stick around long. I finally got back in to the hobby again in 2014, now that I have my own house and can install equipment as I wish.

I am a member of the Yarmouth Amateur Radio Club in Yarmouth, NS Canada and currently sit on the executive as Secretary and Webmaster.

In my professional life, I am currently a Technical Systems Engineer with a company that supports VoIP (voice over IP) telephony and unified communications systems. I work out of my home office (ham shack) as the company is distributed throughout the USA and Canada.

I have had other IT positions in the past. From help desk and desktop support, to Windows Server support. Also, I’ve recently also held a position that was not IT at all but was focused on energy conservation. I have had many jobs over the years but I always seem to fall back on technology as that is what I am most passionate about.

My shack now consists of a Kenwood TS-570S (HF+6m) transceiver, a Yaesu FT-1900R (2m) transceiver, a GE Phoenix UHF transceiver, an ICOM V100 + PK88 TNC for packet, and a dual band QYT KT8900 transceiver, three computers (desktop, laptop, and server). I now spend most of my radio time on HF chasing DX and ragchewing.
