Welcome to the

Amateur Radio Web Site


Hi - My name is Barry, 
VE6SBS is my amateur radio call sign
and this is me at my workbench in the
SBS (or Slow - But - Sure) Workshop
where I enjoy working on amateur radio
and many other projects.

I have many interests & hobbies, but enjoy those that are highly technical and with neat fun things to play with the most.
I have no shortage of projects to keep me busy and enjoy sharing them on the web. Sharing information is what the internet is about and makes so much more possible. I enjoy, make use of and appreciate what others share and hope others enjoy and find what I share as useful.

Results? I have gotten lots of results!
Hell, I know thousands of things that won't work!
Trying something that doesn't work is not a failure,
but one less thing to try and a step closer to success!

What's New?
The old 'What's New' lists for each sub-website have been removed and I'm hoping to soon have a new single 'What's New' page available for the entire web site.
