The QTH of VA3GY is in the beautiful village of Erin, Ontario, Canada.  Atop the Niagara Escarpment, Erin is 400 meters (1300 feet) above sea level and is about 56 Kms (35 Miles) North West of the City of Toronto.

First settled in 1834, Erin's early industry were lumber mills - the power for which was amply supplied by the flow of the west branch of the Credit River.

Today, the village, along with Hillburgh to the North and surrounding area is part of the Town of Erin.

 

Situated on a 1 acre lot in a quiet sub division on the South side of the village, Erin has been home to the Crawford family since moving back to Ontario from Saint John, New Brunswick in 1999.  The high elevation a clear take off to the South makes Erin an idea location for VHF/UHF operation.
