Callsign history

KJ6MBW from January 2011

W6/VK2IMM in 2005 and 2006 - Jan 2011

KL7/VK2IMM during NA-041 IOTA contest DXpedition to Sitka, Alaska in 2008

VK2IMM from 2002 in Australia, after QRX in VK for several years

VP8CWI from 1996 to 1998 in Port Stanley, Falkland Islands

UW0LBW since 1987 to the early 90th from zone 19 where I obtained my first call.

Equipment

Downsized from some old radios to a FT-857D with optional filters. This setup covers all bands I need and has a rather quiet receiver. A bit small for desktop but works well for DXing and contesting.

AL811 (3 x 811's) to help with some DXpedition pile-ups and for low band DXing.

Antennas are either verticals or some backyard yagi.

Vibroplex Square Brass Racer paddles with K1EL USB keyer for regular 25-30 WPM CW.

I also use a HK-705 straight key time to time running QRS around 16 WPM on low power or QRP with it.

SKCC#11437

CW has been my preferred mode of operation for more than 25 years but do make some QSO's with other modes also.

 

Interests

DXing and some contesting on HF and operating via SAT's on VHF/UHF.
