IC706 MK1 and 5 ele Tonna on 6m. 140 QSO's from IO55RA
Below is a picture of my antenna, it is a MFJ 1979 which is a fully adjustable telescopic
whipand is capable of being a full size quarter wave from 6 - 20m.
My favourite location for working to the pacific area short path looking 40 degrees straight out to sea. It is about 30km from my home but worth the trip. No problem to work VK and ZL from here and also KH6 many times, E51, AH0 and AH8 etc

I adhere to the following and ask all others to do so as well.
DX Code of Conduct:
I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
I will always send my full call sign.
I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
