About Sylvain Faust VE2FET
First licensed as a Canadian Amateur Radio Operator on July 13, 1977, at the age of 12, the youngest in Canada to successfully pass the complete exams including morse code at 10 words per minute, drawing schematics of a radio transmitter, receiver, etc, laws regarding international radio communications and electronics basics, Sylvain has been operating under the same 'callsign' ever since.  It was Lionel VE2DTV, friend of the family, who introduced Sylvain to the Amateur Radio 7 months earlier.

VE2FET was living in Montreal at the time and quickly became a member of the local club VE2UMS.  Among his other interests, the one for computers emerged in 1979.  Under the early guidance of Pierre, VE2BSI (now VE2ICI), he developed a fascination for programming, by first toying with microprocessor machine code and soon enough, 6502 assembler using a KIM.

Within a few short years, Sylvain became a world-level specialist in transactional database design and the fine art of transaction performance tuning.  He's the creator of the product SQL-Programmer(r) (1992) among others and founder of Sylvain Faust Inc. (1988) at the age of 23 and a few days.  (SQL-Programmer(r), SQL-Optimizer, SQL-Sombrero are now owned by BMC Software since November 2000).

Sylvain was born in February 1965 in St-Hyacinthe, province of Quebec.  He later moved to Montreal at the age of 8.  He has been living in the Ottawa-Gatineau area (west of Montreal) and the Austin, Texas region between 1986 and 2007.

Among his current "Amateur Radio" equipment, his shelves support top of the line ICOM IC-7800, IC-7000, IC-PW1, IC-703+, TH-D7, TH-F6, IC-V8000, IC-02AT, MFJ-259B, MFJ-989D, MFJ-904H, KPC-3 Plus, etc...  No more Marconi 52 (52, first receiver for Sylvain where he praticed decoding CW few months before going for his license exam in 1977), 19 Mk III, Heathkit HW-16, Heathkit DX-60, Johnson Viking Mk1, or various Teletype (RTTY) Models, 19,28,33 and more...

Sylvain is also Certified and ARRL/LoTW Certified and uses incoming/outgoing Quebec QSL Bureau as well.  He replies Direct to all QSL received Direct.
